A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a friend’s wedding in a little town called Montreux located at the foot of the Swiss Alps. During my stay at a beautiful lake side hotel, I sampled a hearty Seeds Salad that I’ve not been able to forget.
So as soon as I got back home, I attempted to recreate this dish which I thoroughly enjoyed but with my own spin. Guess what – it turned out fab! This salad is not only delicious and so easy to make, but its also loaded with so much nutrients from all the super seeds. Let me lay it all out for you…
Pumpkin seeds: help improve immune system and reduce risk of diabetes
Sunflower seeds: for strong bones and beautiful skin.
Flax seeds: strengthens heart and digestive health. can help lower blood pressure/cholesterol.
White sesame seeds: promote youthfulness and help prevent osteoporosis.
Black sesame seeds: great for hair and nourishes the blood
This dish is so light yet gratifying. Imagine fresh mixed salad leaves accompanied by plenty of crunchy seeds and chunks of creamy avocado drizzled over with some slightly sweet balsamic reduction. Need I say more…
