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.

  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, washed and sliced into bite size pieces
  • ¼ cup carrots, sliced
  • ¼ cup celery, cliced

  • ¼ cup Brazil nuts, toasted and chopped

 

Equipment

Large serving bowl.
