Parsley & Broccoli Salad

This tasty recipe gets its flavour from a knockout vinaigrette of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and lemon zest that come together as a tangy and nutritious side dish.

The sunflower seeds provide a broad range of minerals including copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and zinc as well as folate, and vitamins B1 and B6. 

The fresh parsley provides a massive dose of folate, iron and vitamins A, C and K while the broccoli fills in the vitamin B5 and potassium.
