Mango, avocado, feta and chickpea super salad

This is my winter super salad – we need a little vibrancy and freshness at this time of year though, of course, this would be equally good as a summer salad.

It’s very easy to make which makes it perfect if you don’t have much time or energy.

It’s packed with nutrients to support the immune system, nervous system, skin and digestive health.

Cauliflower – a good source of B vitamins, antioxidants and fibre

Avocados – contain heart healthy fats and more potassium than a banana

Mango – a source of prebiotic fibre, so beneficial for gut health, as well as being a source of vitamin C

Feta cheese – a source of protein, B vitamins and calcium, feta also contains beneficial bacteria. It’s easier to digest and less inflammatory than cheese that’s made from cows milk

Chickpeas – a good source of vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein
