Delicious Salads

Cherry Tomatoes and Sunflower Seed Salad

It is easy to create unique salads by varying the toppings, yet using many basic ingredients such as tomatoes, cucumber and spinach. In this salad the sunflower seeds add nuttiness, a different flavor and more fiber. This salad is a good accompaniment to rich foods like macaroni and cheese. Spinach is described as a health powerhouse, so try and incorporate spinach in as many salads as you can.

It is also high in Vitamin K, which helps build strong bones, lowering the risk of fracture from osteoporosis. It is also the richest plant source of folic acid which helps prevent birth defects.


  • A handful of spinach leaves
  • ½ cup sliced cucumber
  • A cup of cherry tomatoes

  • dressing of your choice, although I am partial to balsamic vinaigrette


  • Wash all ingredients. Peel and cut cucumber in cubes
