This salad is especially great as it is loaded with calcium. It is a great indication of just how easy it is to get an abundance of nutrients in one easy and delicious dish.
Note that the amount of calcium in milligrams is listed after each ingredient
3 cups Lettuce Mix 45 mg
1 cup Watercress 41 mg
3 TBSP Parsley, chopped 15 mg
6 tsp Sesame Seeds, toasted 178 mg
2 oz Feta Cheese 280 mg
1 cup Strawberries, sliced 24 mg
½ cup Olive Oil
¼ cup Grapeseed Oil
¼ cup Olive Oil
3 TBSP White Miso 130 mg
3 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
3 cloves Garlic, minced 15 mg
6-8 Basil leaves, chopped
Total Calcium 728 mg Divided by 2 = 364 mg calcium per person!
Blend all dressing ingredients in food processor or blender.
Mix all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle salad dressing over to taste, reserving balance of dressing in the refrigerator for future use. Celtic salt and pepper to taste.
 I prefer sheep or goat feta as it is higher in nutrients, lower in fat and easier to digest.
 Miso is a fermented soy product. It comes in a paste and is delicious to add to various dishes.
