Salad 1

Those salad days are here. And if you are looking for something to add that little extra this year then why not simply go nuts?

A nut sprinkle doesn’t just add a new crunch to your salad dishes but a whole new healthy eating dimension. Regular nut eating can have a dramatic impact on our health.

Our two recipes feature hazelnuts and almonds. Hazelnuts are rich in “good” fats and one ounce has a tenth of your daily fibre need. Almonds are packed with antioxidant vitamin E, protein and minerals.
