The combination of color, textures and flavors makes this an interesting, delicious and healthful salad. The ingredients are all fresh wholesome fruit and vegetables packed with nutrients such vitamins, calcium, fiber & magnesium amongst others. 17 grapes count as one serving of the 5 to 9 a day recommended servings of fruits and vegetables and are a good source of vitamin C.
Ensure that all fruit and vegetables are washed under running water. Soak lettuce in a dish of water with ½ tsp. of salt. This helps to remove bacteria. Use a salad spinner to remove excess water. Dabbing the ingredients on paper towels also helps to keep them dry. To clean mushrooms effectively, after running water over them, use a paper towel to remove bits of debris and then rinse again, before chopping them.
