Recipe: NERGI salad

There is a new superfood on the block! NERGI mini kiwi berries are now available at M&S and full of vitamins and minerals, rich in antioxidants Vitamins C and E, as well as trace elements such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. And, because they are high in fibre, they also help keep the digestive system healthy.

The super fruit can also be used in various recipes, both sweet and savoury. Try chopped up into segments and topped on pancakes, mixed in with a super food-style salad with quinoa and spinach, or stirred in with yoghurt and muesli for breakfast.

Try this salad recipe for a super healthy lunch.
