This delicious, immune-boosting salad is so refreshing, delicious, and satisfying you'll be powering straight through your to do list in no time.
Here's a breakdown of some star ingredients in this salad that pack a health punch:
Champagne Vinegar – This is more than just a gourmet ingredient; it might also help in reducing body weight, waist size, and belly fat
Dijon Mustard – A dollop of this condiment can add a dash of selenium—an antioxidant—and also provide anti-inflammatory benefits, courtesy of compounds like curcumin
Honey – A spoonful of honey is revered for its rich antioxidant content. It's known for suppressing coughs, promoting healing, and potentially even aiding against high blood pressure & cholesterol
Garlic – Known to amplify immunity, lower blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol, garlic also brings potential anticancer properties to the table
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – A liquid gold loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants that fight inflammation
Arugula – This leafy green is a cradle of vitamins A, C, K, and B and also brings in fibrous content that supports immune health
Oranges – Brimming with vitamin C, oranges are essential for skin health and immune function
Red Grapefruit – This citrus fruit gifts an immunity boost through vitamins A & C and houses fiber for maintaining digestive health
Fresh Figs – High in fiber and minerals like magnesium, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium, and vitamin K, figs offer optimum health benefits
Fennel Bulb – This crunchy ingredient is not just for freshening your breath; it's also got good amounts of calcium, vitamin C, dietary fiber and potassium, contributing to bone health
Microgreens –Younger, yet mightier, these leafy greens contain five times more vitamins and carotenoids than their mature counterparts
Freshly Chopped Mint Leaves – Mint is great for digestion, headaches, and might even enhance brain function
Sliced Almonds – A perfect snack homemade or store-bought, almonds are heart-healthy with lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium, and vitamin E. They're known to assist with blood sugar control and can help lower cholesterol
