Antipasti but make it a high fibre salad! We've bumped up the nutrition by using fresh tomatoes that are high in a collection of photoprotectants, helping to protect skin from UV damage as well as fighting heart disease. We've also included black olives which are full of antioxidants as well as loads of courgette to provide potassium for muscle health.
