1/3 cup of pomegranate seeds,

1/3 cup of walnuts,

1 and 1/2 cups of spinach.

Ingredients for the dressing:

1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar,

1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar,

1 tablespoon of avocado oil,

1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice,

A pinch of sea salt and pepper.

Begin by mixing all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dressing ingredients to a jar, seal it, and shake gently to combine everything thoroughly. Finally, add the dressing to the salad.

Why opt for a homemade salad?

The salad contains vitamins A, C, E, K, B vitamins, beta-carotene, magnesium, manganese, zinc, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, iron, anthocyanins, chlorophyll, dietary fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. These valuable elements enhance immunity against viral and bacterial infections and are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Antioxidants can decrease free radicals, which cause oxidative stress and slow the body's aging process. They also lower the risk of various cancers, including liver, stomach, pancreas, lung, breast, prostate, and colon cancer.

Regularly consuming this salad helps lower unhealthy LDL cholesterol levels, protecting against atherosclerosis and reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Furthermore, the nutrients present in the salad improve the function of the nervous, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. They also enhance eye health and skin, hair, and nail condition. They also positively influence bowel movement, accelerating peristalsis and removing harmful food deposits.
