There is no better way to have healthy hair and skin than through food, choosing foods and ingredients that nourish it from the inside out.
This salad is full of great taste and a pleasant twist to a traditional nopal salad.
Pineapple: good source of vitamin C, good source of fiber
Cilantro: Good source of fiber, rich in magnesium and iron
Green Onions: loaded with vitamin C and vitamin A, and very strong antioxidant properties,
Garlic: could end your hair loss problems because of its high levels of allicin, a sulfur compound similar to that found in onions
Almond: Vitamin E, Omega 6 fatty acids and calcium.
Olive Oil:this mazing fatty acid will nourish and add shine to your hair from the inside out
Vinegar: helps fight against food cravings, skin conditions from eczema to aging brown spots.
Salt: not to much, there is nothing healthy about salt 🙂
Let it get green:
Wash and cut the nopal whichever side you like, I like very small pieces, boiled for about 8 min (or till a firm texture) rinse and mix with chopped green onions, cilantro, roasted almond and chopped pineapple.
For the dressing, add to a blender: Olive oil, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper for a smooth consistency. Mix with the salad, decorate, serve and enjoy.
Almendras: Omega 6, Vitamina E, ácidos grasos y calcio
