Nutritional values

Macadamia nuts provide so-called monounsaturated fatty acids, which protect the heart and blood vessels. Carrots and spring onions bring plenty of beta-carotene onto the plate; the chicken filet scores with protein.

If you ever want to enjoy your salad without meat: Instead of chicken breast fillet, just use seasoned tofu.
