We often refer to this as our ‘anti-ageing salad’ as it is jam packed with good oils, vitamins & minerals, antioxidants and low GI grains. We have combined flavoursome herbs and fresh seasonal produce with a splash of salt-reduced Asian sauces to provide a taste experience that you will want to revisit again and again. Topped with a lovely fresh fillet of salmon, the fish oil helps to reduce excessive inflammation in the body and may be useful in protecting our heart & joints, improving brain function and reducing our risk of some cancers. Leaf herbs such as coriander and cruciferous vegetables like broccolini were added as rich sources of antioxidants. Ginger has been traditionally used to stimulate appetite and soothe the digestive system and avocado provides a bonus dose of folate. Lime is loaded with Vitamin C and tops off this simple to prepare lunch or dinner salad. We hope you enjoy it.
