The açai berry is considered to be a superfood high in antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. Some even say that the berry—the fruit of a palm tree native to tropical parts of Central and South America—is one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Serve this salad with multigrain crispbreads such as those made by Wasa.
