Good to know
- Storing: Make sure to store your salad in your refrigerator if you are not eating it right away.
- Shelf life: Ideally the salad should be consumed on the day you prepare it. When stored correctly, however, it will stay fresh for several days.
- Working with fruits and vegetables: Make sure your fruits and vegetables are ripe before you start prepping them. It’s a shame to use ingredients that will not add their full flavour to your dish. As a side note, it is equally important to make sure your ingredients are not overly ripe unless the recipe allows for it.
- Working with fruit: Always make sure you wash fruit before you use it.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
Nutritional Information per Portion
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
