Crunchy colourful lettuce with superfood berries and rosehip dressing
I know rosehips from my childhood. We drank it as tea and I also knew it as a deliciously creamy jam. Rosehips have this refreshingly slightly acidic note, which makes the taste of the "orange of the north", as the red fruits of the dog rose are also known, unmistakable. However, the vitamin C content of this coleus nut far surpasses the oranges: 100 grams of rosehip contain 1250 mg of vitamin C - which is a multiple (up to 30 times) of the vitamin content of the orange.
You can collect the rosehips yourself (they grow along fields - harvest time best in November) or buy as dried powder. Since the rosehips are not in season, I try the dried product. The rosehip powder from the company coesam, which I was allowed to test for this recipe, tastes like a pure powder, which I used as the basis for a vinaigrette and combined with a leaf salad with dry berries. The result: The salad tastes deliciously fresh and the superfood fruits goji berries and cranberries add an exciting flavor component.
TIP: I also like to use the organic rosehip powder as an additive in breakfast cereals or in smoothies. One to two teaspoons a day provide full vitamin power!

SUPERFOODS in this recipe - they can:
Goji berries: contain a lot of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E (which is rarely found in fruits), as well as considerable vitamin B levels and provide more iron than spinach.
Rosehips: 100 g contain about 1250 mg of vitamin C.
Cranberries: This small, red fruit is known as a vitamin C bomb and also contains many antioxidants and other valuable ingredients that are supposed to work well in cystitis, among other things.
