And because that is healthy can be very tasty, this selection parade blends that transform a dish seemingly simple to a feast: In the Super Food Salad alongside a combination of avocado, beets, grilled, mix of legumes and grains, broccoli, pomegranate & seeds with spicy sauce harissa & ricotta cheese, in a game of contrasts. Already the Salad JI Caesar joins lettuce romana crispy & red chicory, croutons crunchy, cauliflower, grated & red onion sauce with yogurt flavored with garlic, parmesan, hazelnuts toasted, chervil & basil in a combination appetizing.
