The powerful combination of watercress and strawberries in this salad helps your body absorb the iron found in the spinach, says Laura Cipullos, RD, certified diabetes educator in New York City. “In addition, watercress is a cruciferous vegetable that is not only cancer protective, but high in calcium. Red onions have antioxidant properties and contain quercetin, which has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties.”
