Tomato, mozzarella and avocado salad
This is a far cry from the popular tricolore salad of 1970s Italian restaurants. The slices of red tomato, white mozzarella and green avocado are complemented by the nutritious dried fruits, vitamin C from the kiwi and an extremely high content of protective antioxidants. A salad to turn back your biological clock.
