Nutrient Analysis (per serve):
Feel free to substitute greens, cheese, fruit or nuts with other fresh ingredients of your choice, the beauty of a salad is that it is very flexible and can accommodate everyone’s preferences.
This salad is full of healthy dietary fibre, antioxidants and healthy fats from the fruit, greens and nuts.
To color the salad and make it attractive, try to add in some capsicum, beetroot or pumpkin which also provide extra antioxidants and nutrients for you.
Using small quantities of vinegar and honey to dress the salad just before serving prevents the salad from going soggy. Vinegar and honey is also a much healthier dressing compared with commercial salad dressings which are typically high in fat.
You can also mash the avocado and mix it with low fat plain yoghurt to prepare a creamy salad dressing.
