Did you read the recent post on “Why You Should Eat More Sardines” and now you’re wondering how to get started? This sardine salad has an abundance of nutrients from these tiny fish, plus antioxidant power from turmeric. 

To recap on some of the benefits of these tiny, oily fish, the nutrients in sardines can:

  • Support neurological function and slow cognitive decline
  • Protect your heart
  • Support strong and healthy bones
  • Boost your immune system

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 can sardines (I like Wild Planet sardines, packed in olive oil)
  • 5 grape or cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 5 olives, diced (I used castelvetrano, since I always have them on hand)
  • 2 T chopped celery
  • 1/4 t turmeric
  • 1/4 t mustard powder
  • A splash of apple cider vinegar (about 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 T basil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
 
 
For dipping:
  • 1 medium sliced cucumber
  • Gluten-free crackers, optional (my favorite are Simple Mills)
