This month I have chosen a recipe that is rich in dietary magnesium, a nutrient that is very beneficial for the nervous system.
This salad is easy to make and really lends itself to being customized to your taste. I like to add a cup of organic sweet corn, avocado, diced tomato, or diced cooked sweet potato for variety.

Throw all the ingredients and vinaigrette into a bowl and mix. You can make this ahead and chill.
