One serving of this quick salad gives you a dose of alpha- and beta-carotene, folic acid, vitamin C, fiber, and plant omega-3 fatty acids from the canola oil. If you want to make this more of a meal and you want to add fish omega-3 fatty acids and some protein into the picture, stir in a can of albacore tuna.
