For those days when you don't feel like cooking but still fancy a nutritious meal, we have the perfect recipe you: raw zucchini and tangerine salad.
It takes just 5 minutes to prepare- chopping board to bowl, and all you have to do is slicing the vegetables and tossing them together with a tangy vinaigrette. Easy-peasy!
This veggie salad is not only a breeze to make, but it's also a real feast of colourful and nutrient-packed ingredients.
Courgettes, radishes, and tangerines are rich in vitamins and minerals, yet low in calories. Red kidney beans and pumpkin seeds provide slow-digesting carbs, gut-loving fibres, and healthy unsaturated fats.
Each bowl covers 3 of your 5-a-day for fruit and vegetables and comes in just 320kcal. Also, it gives you 80% RDI for fibres, 30% RDI for proteins, and just 12% RDI for carbs.
What's great about this recipe is that you can prepare a big batch of this salad and pack it for your lunch box. It will taste even better the next day, as the zucchini will have marinated overnight in the vinaigrette.
