 Ingredients

  • 1 bunch chard, chopped
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, shredded
  • 1/4 head cabbage, red, shredded (optional)
  • 1/4 medium onion, red, thinly sliced – can also use shallots (optional)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, raw
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

In a blender, prepare your salad dressing of choice.

  1. Toast Pumpkin Seeds – In an oven (or toaster oven), toast raw pumpkin seeds at 350 F until lightly browned and crispy, tossing occasionally, for about 5-10 minutes. Keep a watchful eye during toasting, as they can burn quickly! Set aside to cool.
  2. Prepare the salad: in a large bowl, toss together chard, spinach, carrots, cabbage, onion and lemon juice.
  3. Add your salad dressing of choice and toss until thoroughly combined.
  4. Serve into salad bowls and sprinkle with toasted pumpkin seeds.
  5. Note: Leftovers will taste best if the salad, the pumpkin seeds and the dressing are all stored separately until ready to serve.
