Honeyed Turkey and Avocado Salad with a Yoghurt Mint Dressing …

A healthy, tasty salad, cram-packed with superfoods!

Watercress is both full of vitamin C and abundant in minerals including folate, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

It has been dubbed the food to keep you looking young!

Avocados are brimming with essential nutrients, including potassium, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a so-called nutrient booster; so when eaten with other foods, avocados enable the body to better absorb cancer-fighting nutrients!

Finally honey acts as an antioxidant, a substance that can prevent the effects of free radicals!
