Tomato and Basil Salad over Spinach

8 medium tomatoes, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

1/4 small red onion, diced

10-12 medium fresh basil leaves, divided

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 garlic clove, grated

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/4 cup olive oil

3 cup baby spinach

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, shredded (optional)

3 tablespoons no salt sunflower seeds

No Salt Seasoning and Pepper, to taste

After chopping tomatoes, gently squeeze some of the juice out. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add celery, onion and 3/4 of the basil with no salt seasoning and pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, garlic, mustard, oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the tomato mixture; mix well.

On a large serving platter, spread the spinach out on the platter. Pour the tomato mixture over the spinach. Top with parmesan cheese, if using, sunflower seeds and remaining basil. Serve immediately.
