With this incredible nutritious and tasty salad, you will get some of your seven a day. Watercress is delicious and high in vitamins C, E, and K, as well as calcium, beta-carotene, iron, and iodine. Fennel is a fantastic source of vitamin C, iron, folate, and magnesium, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Strawberries are sweet, and when they’re mixed with olive oil, mint, and almonds, they’re even better. What a fab fertility friendly salad!
