Nutritional values

This recipe is amazing for even the pickiest eaters. Watercress and grapefruit provide plenty of vitamin C, and avocado contains monounsaturated fatty acids. These fatty acids are able to slightly lower the harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood and raise the good HDL cholesterol.

For a full meal, serve some wholewheat baguette with the salad. If you serve it as an appetizer, half a salad portion per person is sufficient.
