Broccoli Salad with Pesto, Apples & Walnuts (recipe)

Serves: 4 | Prepping time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 0 mins
This week we have a delicious broccoli salad with pesto, apples and walnuts.

Broccoli contains at least as much vitamin C as the well-known vitamin bomb, the kiwi. In fact, with 200 grams of broccoli, you get more than twice the recommended amount of vitamin C per day! This vegetable is also rich in fiber, iron, beta-carotene, folic acid and potassium.

Walnuts consist of fats, protein, dietary fiber and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and α-linolenic acid which are good for the heart and vessels.

In short, a super healthy salad for lunch or as a side dish.
