Nutritional values

The cheese makes the salad satiating and calcium-rich: after all, one portion covers a quarter of our daily requirements. The mineral gives stability to bones and teeth, is involved in blood clotting and impulse transmission in the nervous system and contributes to a regular heartbeat.

The salad is accompanied by a freshly baked baguette, which is credited to the carbohydrate account.
