When it comes to heart health, you cannot do much better than omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Omega-3s help promote optimal blood flow, blood pressure, and coagulability or "thickness" of the blood, while studies have shown a stunning 29 percent reduction in heart disease for every 10-gram increase in fiber.
 
Fortunatly, you can benefit from both of these nutrients in one delicious meal. Not only is this salad packed with heart-healthy omega-3s, but it is also has natural, plant-based fiber. Heart Healthy Recipes
