Nutritional values

Thai salad is low in fat, rich in protein and provides a wealth of vitamins and minerals: The daily requirement of vitamin A for the immune system and smooth skin as well as niacin for energy production is covered by one serving.

Roasted cashews increase the fat content of the salad, but at the same time provide more bite and nutty taste. They also provide healthy fatty acids and supply us with the anti-stress ingredients magnesium and vitamin B1.
