Did you know: Kale or leaf cabbage is a group of vegetable cultivars within the plant species Brassica oleracea. They have green or purple leaves, in which the central leaves do not form a head (as opposed to headed cabbages). Kales are considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of Brassica oleracea. In a 100 gram serving, raw kale provides 49 calories and is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate, and manganese. Kale is a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, vitamin E and several dietary minerals, including iron, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. Source: Wiki

The star of this salad is the Safcol Premium Smoked Salmon which provides a matrix of health benefits for your body. This includes animal-based haem iron which is better absorbed than the plant or non-haem iron. Iron is essential to allow oxygen to be transported around your body and supports your immune function to work at its best. In addition to this, salmon is a good source of protein to allow all the cells of your body to be repaired when needed. Salmon is a great source of the artery, brain, and heart loving omega-3 fat. Omega 3 fat in the form found in seafood is made up of DHA and EPA. DHA is the main type of fat needed for your brain.

Quinoa is a whole grain meaning it gives your body more fibre than refined varieties. Also, non-haem iron, zinc and B vitamins needed for energy production. Kale is a source of folate or vitamin B9 which is essential for DNA synthesis and repair. Kale is also a good source of fibre, vitamin K and vitamin A. The small Lebanese cucumber will keep you feeling fuller for longer by adding more fibre to this salad.

Sesame seeds are a great source of calcium as well as magnesium which allows for normal muscle contractions and is needed for the development of strong bones. They also contain phytosterols which help to drag the cholesterol out of your body and keep your total cholesterol and ‘bad’ LDL cholesterols lower. This salad will tempt your taste buds time and time again and your body will thank you for making this choice
