    I figure about 350 calories.

    Craisins are 130 calories in 1/3 cup.

    Sunflower seeds, hulled are 330 calories in 1/3 cup.

    quinoa is 127 calories for a 1/2 cup cooked in water.

    the Chick peas are 286 calories in one cup.

    The edamame is 120 calories in 1/2 cup

    If you want to know the calorie content of a certain food just Google it.

    I actually just had some salad from a bag of mixed salad of iceburg and romaine. I have the package in front of me and in 3 cups there is 15 calories. I am sure if you are talking about a bag of mixed salad that you buy from the store, it is probably the same as this one. Lettuce has like nothing but water in it

    It sound like a very healthy salad to me. I would guess that it's likely around 400 calories or so, but that is a complete guess. If you're worried about calorie intake, eat slowly & only until you feel full. If you are still hungry after dinner, have another small, healthy snack if needed. Your body will know when it has had enough. =)
