Nutritional values

There's a plate full of minerals right here. Besides magnesium, calcium, the "bone building material", is particularly abundant because of the high calcium and low fat cheese in this recipe. 

If you are allergic to apples: This strong salad tastes great even with pears that are not too sweet and firm.
