Here's a delicious side salad for grilled or roasted chicken, pork, or fish. Carrots and cabbage are the crisp starting points, while two types of seeds -- pumpkin and sunflower -- add extra crunch (and heart-healthy fats). First toasting the seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant and golden will bring out their flavor. All that's needed is a bit of olive oil and vinegar (rice vinegar is used here, but cider vinegar would also be delicious).

  • 1/2 onion
