It also contains carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron and folic acid. For best nutritional value, eat raw or slightly cooked.

Pair with fresh citrus and berries, nuts, strong cheeses, spring vegetables such as peas and asparagus, or toss with hot past or grains until barely wilted.
