Nutritional values

Lycopene in tomatoes and beta-carotene in pumpkin and pomegranate juice act against free radicals and thus prevent the formation of harmful substances that can be produced during grilling.

Fancy an oriental touch? Then prepare the salad with orange juice, 1 grated carrot, some cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of raisins!
