I saw sardi's request for salad dressing and this is one of my favorite salads:

Salad ingredients
Baby spinach
Raw sunflower seeds (hulled)
Optional salad ingredients: onion, shredded carrots, cold cooked potatoes, red bell pepper, go to town

Dressing (tweak the measurements to your taste - I love vinegar so it's heavy on that):
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive, grapeseed, or other salad oil
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon dry, crushed tarragon
pinch of salt if desired

Whisk all salad ingredients together in a small bowl.

Put veggies in another bowl.

Add dressing, toss, and enjoy.
