Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This salad is a unique combination that makes a savory punch full of micronutrients. Pumpkin seeds contain a healthy dose of iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, and zinc. How can you beat that?! Seeds, like sunflower and pumpkin, add healthy unsaturated fats to your meals which are important for keeping brain function high and healthy. Broccoli is known as a vegetable packed with nutrition, as it low in fat but high in fiber and protein!
