Superfood sounds super to me! Eat the colourful salad first with your eyes, it is guaranteed to make you smiley and happy, in a spring kind of way. Next, when you bite into the combination of crunchiness and green goodness and the smoothness of white cheese and avocado, you can practically feel the vitality gushing down your veins.

When it comes to superfoods, you don’t always have to go for exotic goji berries or maca or such things. Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. And this salad is just bursting with them! Kale and red cabbage are antioxidant superstars, spinach, too, packs tons of nutritional benefits. Pop-Eye knew what it was doing to his muscle tone!

Whenever you get your hands into wild, natural bilberries, don’t hesitate. The Nordic jewel has much more concentrated levels of vitamins and antioxidants than its cultivated sister. Almonds and avocado belong to the list of superfoods, too, but since this is not a nutritional hand out I suggest you do your own googling! The pure thought of making this salad fills me with positive energy. It represents everything food should be; its nutritious, protein rich, filled with all kinds of doing good for you-sort of ingredients. It looks amazing and appetizing. And last, but not least, it is SUPER tasty! You hear me? SUPER!

Instructions:
