Soya bean salad.... fresh and comforting salad

Salads are perfect. A bowl of simple salad can be perfect for breakfast or a quick lunch or even for a light dinner. Me and my hubby love these simple Salads at the breakfast table. No oil and loaded with fresh ingredients make you relish every bit of it without the slightest hint of guilt

Soy is rich and full of goodness. A legume with highest protein content makes it a wonderful choice for additions to our intakes. Has amino acids too. Google it and learn about the benefits it can give

A healthy salad is what is aimed here with minimal on spices to keep the taste fresh
