What better way to celebrate the first of summer than with this gorgeous salad? We love how vibrant the colors are, and with fresh produce combined with crunchy sunflower seeds, the combination is a win in our books! This colorful chard salad is the perfect dish to make a few days prior to serving, as it gives the chard, beets, and carrots time to soften and develop a tangy, delicious flavor. Not only is this salad pretty to look at, but it packs a big nutritional punch! Thanks to the swiss chard, it’s rich in vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, copper, potassium, vitamin E, iron, and fiber. Studies have even shown that swiss chard has anti-inflammatory benefits, may help regulate blood sugar, and aid with bone health (1), so go ahead and reap all of the benefits that this salad has to offer! Your body will thank you later.
