Nutritional values

Vitamins, dietary fibres, and low fat make the spicy and hot pickled greens more than just visually appealing! Olive oil supplies valuable unsaturated fatty acids and chili flakes provide spiciness that gently stimulates the metabolism.

 

Whether with grilled meat, short roasts, eggs, on an antipasti platter, in a salad, or simply on a piece of flat bread, the pickled vegetables are always a hit.
