Nutritional values

This recipe is an excellent source of protein, B vitamins, and vitamin A. Add a whole-wheat baguette on the side for an extra portion of fiber, which will keep you full for longer and improve digestion.

Fresh peach season is short, but this salad also tastes great with orange slices!
