Mixing flavors and textures can turn a simple salad into a satisfying and nourishing meal.
Why is this salad so satisfying? Because the flavors are balanced, in harmony and the textures are diverse, from tender leafy greens, to tiny bursts of pomegranate seed sweetness.
This nutrient-dense salad comes together in a delicious way: a nice source of creamy, healthy omega-3 fat (avocado); minerals (leafy greens); crunchy zinc-rich pumpkin seeds (zinc is a mineral important for boosting immunity and for healthy testosterone); cancer-fighting antioxidants in sweet pomegranate seeds; tossed together with healthy monounsaturated fat (extra virgin olive oil) and an enzyme-rich fermented food (raw apple cider), which promotes digestion.
