Olive oil and avocados are a rich source of monounsaturated fats that are good for your heart and help to balance out cholesterol levels in the body. As well as being high in calcium, zinc, selenium, magnesium, folate, vitamin C and vitamin B, this salad is also rich in folate, which helps to break down the amino acid homocysteine in the blood: high levels of which are a risk factor for heart disease.
