This recipe is a source of vitamin C which is vital for a healthy immune system and it also helps us to absorb the iron in foods. This is especially important when eating vegetarian and vegan food. Variety is a fundamental part of any healthy diet. We can get into the habit of having a narrow selection of vegetables and by doing so you are limiting the range of nutrients in your diet. Rainbow salads like this are a perfect way of introducing lots of colourful fruits and vegetables into your diet.
