ingredients for the healthy apple camembert winter salad

  • Lamb’s lettuce.

    also known as cron salad or field salad is a rich in nutrition salad green. The salad is rich in Vitamin B9, which can act as a stress reliever, as it acts on the nervous system and helps you to sleep well. It is also full of antioxidants, thanks to Vitamin C. Lamb’s lettuce is also rich in Vitamin A, which provides beta-carotene, an antioxidant that protects the skin and eyes. Omega-3 in it may help prevent cardiovascular diseases, by reducing bad cholesterol.
  • Beetroot.

    The root vegetable is an excellent source of Vitamin C, iron manganese, potassium, fiber, and Vitamin B9. Beetroot may help lower blood pressure and enhances physical performance thanks to nitrates.
  • Apple.

    The super healthy fruit may protect against diabetes and heart disease and may be beneficial for bone health. For this recipe, I recommend using apples with a balanced sweet-tart flavor and mild acidity (like Elstar or Braeburn apples).
  • Camembert cheese.

    You will need a whole camembert. Try to buy a high-quality camembert
  • Coconut flakes.

    are a healthy source of fat, fiber, zinc, iron, and protein.
  • Pomegranates.

    are rich in vitamins, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds.
  • Balsamic vinegar.

    for the dressing.
  • Olive oil.

    High-quality virgin olive oil.
  • Maple syrup.

    The healthy syrup is going to sweeten the dressing up.

any tips?

  • If you want to prepare the salad ahead of time, cut everything and store them in containers. Drizzle some lime juice on the apple slices so they look good when serving.
  • Add the toppings and dressing just before serving it, as it will look best.
  • Make the cheese before serving, so it will still be warm and cheesy.
  • The portions will double up if you’re serving the salad as an appetizer and not as a meal. The serving sizes are for 2, but if you make it as an appetizer, it will be four portions.
