Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

A basic way to make your salad fast and easy is by sauteing them lightly, cooking vegetables in the microwave and garnishing it with a dash of vinegar dressing, hence making it colourful with just the right amounts of appetizing flavours. While you relish the vegetables loaded with antioxidants, the addition of vinegar in the right amounts provides an alternative to fats and sodium thus increasing the calcium absorption and helping the body to become more receptive to insulin.
