Strawberry, red onion, spinach salad
This is a classic strawberry spinach salad. It is a perfect blend of sweet and sour and savoury. The spinach is one of the richest sources of lutein, which protects your vision. As an antioxidant, lutein protects the macula tissue in your eye by absorbing damaging UV radiation and dissipating it harmlessly. The yellow bell pepper is teeming with vitamin C for immune protection. Together with the strawberries, you get your RDA of vitamin C in just one serving of salad!
