Healthy, because

Even smarter

This salad is characterized by a high mineral content of chicory, rocket and figs. The chicory also offers a lot of bitter substances that have a positive effect on the stomach and intestines. The soluble fiber inulin in chicory also has beneficial properties for the intestinal flora.

If the fig season is already over, they can replace it with other fruit such as pears. To make the salad more substantial and filling, you can add feta cheese or some sliced parmesan.
