Beef and Asparagus Salad with Honey Dressing Radishes and Cherry Tomatoes
Asparagus is a rich source of the B vitamin folate, needed for healthy blood: an average portion (100g) provides over three-quarters of our recommended daily intake. Asparagus also provides good amounts of the antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene, as well as a little vitamin E - all of which are needed for healthy skin and a healthy heart. Asparagus also has a mild diuretic effect, which can help with fluid retention and swollen ankles. And did you know that some people also believe that asparagus is an aphrodisiac?
