Health benefits

Above all, this summer salad would be perfect for digestion and weight loss. Rhubarb is one of my favorite vegetables (yes, did you, know it is considered as a vegetable?). It has great nutritional value. Both rhubarb and strawberries have vitamin C, so it’s really good for the immune system.

On the other hand – apples, that are packed with lots of minerals (an apple a day, keeps the doctor away, yes?). Well, you get all the vitamins, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, detoxifiers, anti-aging – all in one delicious plate!
