Super Seedy Salad
Super Seedy Salad Serves 2
  • 25g sunflower seeds
  • 25g sesame seeds
  • 25g pine nuts
  • 50g salad leaves - lettuce, spinach, watercress, rocket etc
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 50g green olives, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons good olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  1. Place the salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and olives in a salad bowl.
  2. To toast the seeds, heat a medium-sized saucepan over a medium heat. They cook at slightly different rates so toast them separately.
  3. First add the sesame seeds, which toast quickest. Keep moving the pan, remove when they start to brown and tip onto the salad.
  4. Next do the same with the sunflower seeds.
  5. Finally toast the pine nuts in the same way.
  6. Pour on the oil and vinegar and toss the salad gently. (This doesn't need a complex dressing - light oil & good vinegar will do just fine).
  7. Serve with crusty bread and cheese for lunch, or with pasta for a more substantial evening meal.
