This salad is very good for you. Almost all of the ingredients (except for the dressing and olives) are totally raw -- leaving their nutrients and enzymes intact. All the ingredients are organic. The seeds in the salad are very high in protein and essential fatty acids. The chiogga beets are so pretty and are a great ingredient if you want to mildly detoxify your body or just want a jolt of energy. The fresh basil is packed with antioxidants, vitamin A and iron. The kale and swiss chard are loaded with vitamin K, calcium and more iron.
