Spinach is an iron rich vegetable with other high nutritional values as well. In order to preserve its all nutrients it is better to use it as uncooked salad otherwise extreme cooking results in loss of minerals and vitamins. The main ingredients of this salad are beans, carrots, spinach and mushrooms. Both beans and spinach are great source of iron and on the other hand carrots have lots of vitamin A and C.
