Summer Salad

If you are looking for a filling salad with a crunch, this is it.  This salad is great on its own or you can add Collard greens which are tougher and can handle the weight of the vegies.

1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup of toasted sunflower seeds
1/3 extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt or more if desired
Mix all ingredients and wait 10-15 minutes before serving.
