A salad very rich in vitamin C

Recipe and properties of a salad with a lot of vitamin C

Why to eat salads with food rich in vitamin C?

Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin found in fruits and vegetables that are eaten raw, as it is destroyed by heat (during cooking, for example). For this reason it is important that we always accompany our meals with fruit or salads, which provide this antioxidant.

Besides being rich in vitamin C, the following recipe contains beta carotene and a valuable contribution of carbohydrates provided by corn. Ideal to accompany any dish or to share in the center of the table.

In addition, the intense color of the salad (the red beet or the green of the leaves), denotes its richness in phytochemicals, vegetable components that help maintain the health of our body.
