Fig and Apricot Salad

The perfect Summer salad!

Looking for something to side with your preferred protein choice? This is just the salad.

It’s sweet thanks to the apricots and figs, with a kick from the chilli and radish. Talk about great flavours! We’ve mixed it with some fresh greens, and an FFF favourite, Tenderstem Broccoli to bring the most quality nutrition in one simple salad.

Figs are high in fibre, which can support good digestion and help to keep you feeling fuller for longer. On top of this, they are one of the richest plant sources of a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium. Apricots are a great source of many antioxidants, including beta carotene and vitamins A, C, and E. Radishes are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help battle free radicals in your body and has also been linked to preventing cell damage caused by aging, an unhealthy lifestyle, and environmental toxins.
