Salad with red fruits: a cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants

Salad with red fruits: a cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants

Making a salad means we’re not forced to use the cooker and it’s always a good alternative for eating well when there’s little time or when we want to prepare a light meal.

At this time of the year, we can take advantage of the great variety of seasonal fruit to make a salad which is easy, different and rich in antioxidants.

So let’s have a look at the ingredients of this salad with red fruits.

Ingredients for the salad with red fruits

  • A handful of lettuce leaves
  • A handful of rocket
  • A handful of lamb’s lettuce
  • Grated carrot
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Peeled walnuts
  • Hazelnuts, almonds, etc.
  • Soft goat’s cheese

Ingredients for the vinagrette

How to make the raspberry jam

  • 50 gr raspberries
  • A small spoonful of sugar


  1. Prepare the raspberry jam putting the sugar and raspberries into a saucepan on the heat.
  2. Stir until the raspberries have disintegrated and the mixture resembles jam. Allow it to cool.
  3. Clean the lettuce and cut the leaves up to the size you want.
  4. Add some lamb’s lettuce shoots.
  5. Add the rocket.
  6. If you want, add grated raw carrot.
  7. Wash the cherries and the strawberries.
  8. It’s not necessary to wash the raspberries because they’re very delicate.
  9. Take the stalks off the cherries and it’s a good idea to take the stones out as well.
  10. Cut the strawberries up.
  11. Put the red fruit on top of the green salad.
  12. Add your favourite nuts: walnuts, pinenuts, cashew nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, …
  13. If you want, add soft goat’s cheese, which offers a good contrast in flavours and gives the salad another texture.
  14. Put a good dash of extra virgin olive oil, a dash of apple vinegar, salt, a pinch of pepper (optional), a coffeespoonful of mustard and a small spoonful or two of the homemade raspberry jam into a bowl.
  15. Stir it until it’s its well mixed together.
  16. Serve the salad with the red fuits and nuts and just before eating, dress it with the the vinagrette.

It’s a dish which is rich in fibre.  Everyone prepares the salad they like most: there are those who want to add ingredients or leave some out or add a greater quantity of one in particular.  But what there can be no doubt about is that it’s a dish which is light and rich in fibre and vitamins.

If it’s a dish to be included in a vegetarian diet, you can be more generous with the nuts and the cheese to increase the quantity of proteins in our daily intake.
