Belgian Endive – nourish the eyes and helps fight cancer. Its healing benefits affect the entire body! Add a crispy texture and robust flavor!

Radishes – have lots of Vitamin C, minerals, and anti-oxidants. They give a zing to your salad!

Avocado– promote a healthy heart, provides lots of fiber, which adds to satiety, helps control weight, and supports digestion.

(We love avocados in my household – we each eat half of one minimally per day! I feel so fortunate to have access to amazing avocados year-round!)

Sardines– contain healthy fats and cholesterol that promote overall health. They also contain a low amount of mercury because they are so are low on the food chain.

(I like the sardines packed in olive oil from Trader Joes. I usually eat ½ a can and then refrigerate the rest. The olive oil gives my salad the dressing it needs. Feel free to add balsamic vinegar.)

Pistachios– Boost blood, brain, and skin health. One of the few nuts that contain all 3 macro-nutrients (carbs, fats, protein,) dietary fiber, many vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants.

A small handful adds great crunch to any salad!
