This salad is fresh and light, combining you’re daily dose of raw greens with sweet snacking tomatoes, the pepitas and sunflower seeds give this salad that extra crunch and the green goodness dressing gives it that extra zing. Great as a side salad with steak or lamb fillet. YUMMY!

Salad
  • Place pepitas and sunflower seeds in a pan a dry roast over a low heat. As they start to pop and turn brown add tamari and take off heat, set aside.

  • Add spinach and beetroot leaves and snacking tomatoes to large salad bowl.
  • Once asparagus and broccolini have cooled added them to bowl and toss to combine.
  • Sprinkle pepitas and sunflower seeds over the top.
Green Goodness Dressing

  • Taste test and add extra lemon juice, salt or pepper to taste.
  • Add extra water for desired consistency.

Dressing can be served as a side with the salad or tossed through salad.
