This salad of course supports variations, as it can be combined with a supply ofprotein : chopped hard-boiled egg, or turkey breast or chopped chicken breast. Adding protein increases the satiating effect, so it will take longer to eat. And in this way, we maintain the diet and take care of our health.

It is very appetizing both in summer for freshness and lightness, and in winter for its contribution in vitamin C.
