Nutritional values

The cell protection vitamins C and E are particularly well represented in this fruity-tangy salad composition. Thanks to a lot of dietary fibres, high-quality sunflower oil and little added sugar, this salad is also recommended for the menus of diabetics and connoisseurs with fat metabolism problems.

If you use chopped walnuts instead of almond slivers, you will bring additional heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids to the table.
