This superfood-enriched salad made with Dulse seaweed is ideal as a filling low-calorie lunch or as a side to meat and fish dishes. The delicious seed topping can also be stored in a tightly sealed jar for adding to roast veg or rice dishes.

This salad includes Britain’s original bean, the broad bean, grown here since the Iron Age; delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. As well as quinoa to add some nutty carbs and some steamed broccoli. According to Alison Hornby, a dietitian and British Dietician Association spokesperson,

"Broccoli contains many nutrients, such as folate, soluble and insoluble fibre, vitamins C and A, and calcium, which are needed for numerous functions in the body... And it contains compounds that are linked to improving the body's ability to impede the growth of cancer cells."

All this is sprinkled with some Dulse, a fantastic natural source of iodine which helps your thyroid function. Your thyroid regulates your metabolism as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development and bone maintenance. 

This delicious green salad is jam-packed with different textures, lovely flavours and lots of nutritious ingredients. It will make you feel really virtuously good but will also leave you feeling replenished and satisfied. Perfect for this spring weather.
