Summer Nut Salad

Here’s something quick and easy that you can bring to the next lunch together. This salad tastes good, is packed full of nutritious nuts and is not too filling. Light and cooling, it’s the perfect side dish for a meal in the sun.

Step 1) Roast sunflower seeds and cashews in a pan, spray with PAM spray and season with salt and garlic powder. This step is optional, I do it to add more flavor. If you want to create this salad quicker, you can just add the nuts without this step. 

Step 2) Chop walnuts and put on top of lettuce, along with other nuts.

Step 3) Drizzle with Cucumber Yogurt Dressing – get the recipe here –  and sprinkle parmesan cheese.

– 200 cal – This depends on the quantity of nuts you use. 

*NOTE: Use unsalted nuts for this recipe; this is what makes it healthy.
