Bone-Building Salad Recipe

This salad recipe is rich in a variety of minerals, including calcium and phosphorus, making it good fuel for the development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones.

Sardines are naturally plentiful in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, which are also needed in your system to support your teeth and bones.


2 cans of sardines, drained and cut into bite-size pieces.
1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 bell pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
1 red onion, peeled and roughly chopped
Handful of sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 head of green or red leafy lettuce, washed, separated, and dried


Combine all ingredients except lettuce leaves in a bowl and give it a good toss.

Serve this calcium-rich salad with lettuce leaves and use lettuce leaves as wraps for fun and easy eating.

The quantities listed in the ingredients section make for a filling meal for two adults.
