Artichoke Spinach Salad

This tasty salad includes pumpkin seeds, avocado, and grape tomatoes. It’s topped with a vinaigrette that has a hint of lemon.

Artichokes are a fun addition to salads. They’re also nutritious. You may not think of artichokes when you look for foods with antioxidants. Would you guess they’re among the top vegetables in this category? As a bonus, one artichoke contains 9% of the daily value of iron.
