Gluten-Free Romaine Salad with Pears and Brazil Nuts

This versatile salad makes a handsome first course and easily partners with soup, salad or sandwich. Magnesium/ selenium/ zinc laden Brazil nuts and pears naturally tone the bowel. Romaine lettuce is a digestion restorative, providing folic acid, vitamin K, potassium and calcium while carrots add beta carotene, a precursor of vitamin A.

Add oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a large serving bowl and mix with a fork. Add rest of ingredients and toss. Makes 4 servings.
