Adding sunflower seeds and feta make this spinach salad more filling than a typical salad. Consider serving a double portion for a light lunch.

3 cups spinach, roughly chopped
1 1/4 cups sliced red onion
1 1/2 cups diced apple
6 Tbsp sunflower seeds
6 Tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
4 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp honey
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
dash of salt
dash of black pepper

1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together olive oil through black pepper until well combined. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix together spinach, onion, and half of the apple, sunflower seeds, and feta cheese. Toss with dressing until well coated.
3. Top salad with remaining apple, sunflower seeds, and feta cheese.
4. Serve immediately.
