Apple Cider Vinaigrette: I recommend this healthy Salad dressing for this special Salad not minding the fact that you can simply buy any Salad dressing of choice and add to your Salad but homemade Salad dressing is simply the best, at least you can spice up your Salad and use healthier ingredients to make your Salad. This is especially important if you're trying to avoid calorie filled Salad. This Salad dressing is a mix of olive oil, yellow mustard, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and other healthier ingredients. The quantities can be adjusted to suit you. I added more lemon juice, less olive oil and just 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and the taste is perfect.
Celery: Adding this low calorie snack with antioxidants to your Salad is necessary. Celery has range of many health benefits to boost your health.
Spinach: This leafy green that is rich in vitamin E and magnesium is my favorite immune booster.
Arugula or Salad Rocket: Incorporating this edible peppery vegetable packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into this rich Salad will help to raise the level of body immunity.
Blueberries: This nutritious super-food that is low in calories and rich in antioxidant is special and perfect for this Salad.
