Autumn Greens Salad with Sunflower Seeds

Source: Body+Soul, December 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil, preferably cold-pressed
  • 1/2 pound brussels sprouts, very thinly sliced (3 cups)
  • 4 to 6 leaves of leafy greens such as Swiss chard and kale (preferably lacinato), stemmed and thinly sliced (3 cups)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toast sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer until golden, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, stir mustard, lemon juice, salt, and maple syrup together in a small bowl; whisk in oil until emulsified.

  2. Toss brussels sprouts, chard, and kale together. Stir in sunflower seeds and pour in dressing; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
