A Beauty of a Salad with Karma Orchids

0

If you want to serve and impress your guests, this salad featuring Karma orchids can certainly do the job. These gorgeous purple & white edible flowers are great to garnish desserts, salads, drinks and more. Though their primary appeal is their beauty, they do impart a fresh, crispy taste, similar to that of lettuce, endive or chicory. This salad is not only beautiful, it has good nutritional value.

The base is mixed greens. Nutritionally, leafy green vegetables are high in vitamins and minerals. They are also jam packed with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micronutrients and phytochemicals. They offer cancer prevention and cholesterol lowering properties, promote detoxification and support the digestive system. (1)

Contributing to the nutritional value of this salad are the tomatoes, cucumbers and blueberries.

Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Blueberries are thought to have anti-aging and cancer-fighting properties, reduce blood pressure and relieve arterial stiffness. (1)

Bon Appetite,

Donna
