I know what you’re thinking… SARDINES?!? Yes. Sardines. They may not smell the best, but let me tell you something… they taste amazing. I like to use the King Oscar brand specifically, especially since they have a Mediterranean flavored can that is delicious. The savory, satiating, saltiness of these have such a great mouthfeel. As well as that, they are packed with all kinds of nutrients. They have more minerals in them than the package can even state. All the more reason to find a recipe that utilizes these nutrient-dense, cheap, savory treats! And I’m pretty sure this is a recipe for you.

Although not everyone thinks of sardines as the go-to lunch, you should. They taste amazing, make you feel amazing, and let me tell you… this recipe is amazing. The savory fish work so well with the oily texture of the olives and sun-dried tomatoes, especially sitting atop a bed of deliciously crunchy greens. If you’re looking for a punch of vitamins and minerals to help you feel great while tasting as good as anything else, please give this recipe a try. I dare you to look up all of the nutrients that are sitting in this beautiful bowl and tell me that it’s not worth it. Now go get yourself a can of gourmet sardines and let me know what you think!
