Cherry and Chinese cabbage salads are very quick and easy to prepare. Moreover, these are the most useful and vitamin options for dishes, both for an ordinary family evening and for various holidays and events.

About how you can cook them yourself at home and what you need for this, we will tell you later in the article.

The benefits and harms of the dish

Peking cabbage contains an impressive amount of trace elements... It is rich in vitamins (B, PP, A, E, K, P), minerals and amino acids (about 16). Moreover, this product contains a miraculous amino acid called "lysine", which has a beneficial effect on the human body:

  • cleans the blood;
  • strengthens the immune system;
  • gives strength and vigor for the whole day.

The fiber contained in the leaves of such cabbage improves and stabilizes the work of the digestive organs, and the complex of minerals removes excess fluid from the body and thus removes various edema.

Important! Cherry tomatoes are also very rich in vitamins (A, E, C, K and group B), macro- and microelements. They improve the functioning of the heart and cleanse the body of toxins, moreover, they quickly satisfy hunger.

But it should be borne in mind that a salad made from these ingredients may not be useful for everyone... It is worth refraining from cabbage for people with various diseases of the digestive system (gastritis, pancreatitis, ulcers, hyperacidity and stomach bleeding), gallstone disease and metabolic disorders, so as not to aggravate the situation.

Differences in the composition of ordinary tomato and small tomatoes

Despite their size, cherry tomatoes have a wider range of nutrients than ordinary tomato varieties, and less calorie content. But at the same time, these small tomatoes are very satisfying. Most often, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and much less often mayonnaise or sour cream are used as a dressing in cherry salads. All this is especially true for people who practice various diets.
