Nutritional values

A powerful vitamin kick is provided for here: one portion of the fine seafood salad easily covers the daily requirement of vitamin C and almost twice that of vitamin B12. Together with the fatty acids in olive oil, the latter helps to keep the heart and circulation going: ...by defusing the potentially harmful amino acid homocysteine.

Seafood salad almost like Italian salads - the noble salad among salads is guaranteed to be well received by low-carb fans and guests! It can easily be prepared in larger quantities for a meal with friends or a party buffet. It is a smart alternative to Shrimps Cocktail, as it is fresh, fruity and light without cocktail sauce. You can emphasize the fruity component by adding a quarter of a pineapple cut into pieces to your salad and a little wholemeal baguette as a side dish to complete the culinary pleasure and make it even more filling.
