Recipe type: salad
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons unpasteurized raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) cold pressed, unrefined hemp oil, or cold pressed flax oil or walnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • salad plus optional toppings:
  • assorted mixed baby greens or arugula
  • roasted matchstick beets - see my recipe here on how to make these
  • broccoli or kale sprouts
  • diced avocado
  • roasted sweet potatoes
  • hemp seeds
  • sprouted pumpkin seeds
  • sprouted sunflower seeds
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl or small glass jar (I used a recycled glass jelly jar) whisk together the 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons lemon juice and ¼ teaspoon sea salt.
  2. Slowly add in ΒΌ cup hemp seed oil, whisking until emulsified.
  3. Stir in the 2 tablespoons flax seeds.
  4. Once the dressing is mixed, give it a taste and adjust the seasonings.
  5. Tasting tip: For the most accurate idea of what the dressing will taste like on your salad, dip a leaf into the dressing, shake off the excess, and give it a try.
  6. Put the mixed greens and broccoli or kale sprouts into a large salad bowl, lightly drizzle the dressing over the greens and toss gently to combine.
  7. Now comes the fun part, adding in all those extra nutritional goodies that give this salad some added depth, texture and taste! Add in some roasted matchstick beets, (these only take 12-15 minutes to bake up, and add extra flavor, texture and tons of nutrition) some diced avocado, (healthy fat) sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds, as well as additional hemp seeds.
  8. Give the salad a final toss to combine all of the ingredients and dig in!
Notes
Feel free to cut the dressing in half if you're just making a salad for yourself or 2 people
