Smoked salmon contains essential omega-3 fatty acids; the grapefruit and oranges offer antioxidant vitamin C, the mixed greens and spinach provide vitamin A, the mushrooms contain selenium and natural antioxidants, and the sunflower seeds supply antioxidant vitamin E and zinc. Look for smoked salmon fillets in the refrigerated seafood department or in shelf-stable pouches near the canned tuna.

Makes 1 large salad (2 servings, ½ salad per serving)

Ingredients

3 cups baby spinach leaves
3 cups mixed greens
½ cup sliced mushrooms
½ cup red onion slices

2 tablespoons roasted, salted sunflower seed kernels
2 smoked salmon fillets (3-4 ounces each)

2. Arrange half the mushrooms, red onions, grapefruit and oranges over each salad. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds.
