Nutritional values

The fixed salad with less than 400 calories has everything that a meal should contain in terms of main nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, fat and in addition fibre. Therefore it is also very satisfying - without being a burden. It also provides a quarter of the daily requirement of folic acid; this vitamin is indispensable for blood formation as well as development and growth processes in the body.

Raw courgettes have a slightly nutty flavour that goes well with olives and cheese. If you prefer them cooked, you can sauté the slices briefly in a pan after the cheese has been fried in it. Vegans can replace the cheese with tofu.
