This is a super salad, because it is both nutritious and quick to prepare.
We have chosen broccoli as the main ingredient for its mild and pleasant flavour. To gain the maximum benefit, we will eat it raw. The salad also contains sweet pepper, a vegetable with a firm texture, a characteristic flavour and remarkable antioxidant abilities, and carrot, a root vegetable that increases our vital energy and has an alkalising power. We have also added cranberries, a small, very low-sugar fruit that is a source of vitamins and minerals and has a strong antioxidant function.
To balance the flavours, we have added a bit of apple, which also has many health benefits. In particular, apples contain pectin, a soluble fibre that helps lower cholesterol and eliminate heavy metals.
We have also added seaweed as it is rich in vitamins and minerals. We have chosen to use wakame seaweed as it has a mild flavour and can easily be incorporated raw. Its texture contrasts with the crunchiness of the other ingredients. The handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds provides an extra dose of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and unsaturated fats (omega 6 and 9). We have brought all the ingredients together using a gently acidic, tasty Port wine vinegar sauce, hazelnuts (a source of fibre, vitamins and minerals), mustard and extra virgin olive oil.
