My husband and I love this salad. With the crunchy apple and sunflower seeds, and the flavourful vinaigrette and feta cheese, it personifies my #noboringsalads motto.
If you split this recipe in two, each one will give you just 10 grams of protein. That’s not quite enough for a meal, so pair it with another protein source – a piece of salmon perhaps, or throw in the whole can of chickpeas and call it a vegetarian night. Or, I often add packaged roasted chickpeas for extra fibre, protein and crunch.
The recipe comes from the Nutrition Action Healthletter, one of my favourite reads. It’s a fun way to learn about food and health, pick up a new recipe or two, and support the non-profit Center for Science in the Public Interest, as they fight for better food policies and labelling.
