Tomato Salad with Spirulina Hemp Dressing
Always trying to find little ways of adding in nutrient dense foods or superfoods, since being a mom I have always done that over the years. Knowing what I know now of course I would do things differently for my kids but we do the best we can with what we know. I do remember my kids coming home from birthday parties asking why our juice tasted so different and that was because it was 3/4 water – I even knew then they had too much sugar even being real juice,I held out as long as possible before they figured it out!! lol
So now that my kids are teenagers and I can make something that has a fair amount of nutritional value AND they like it is pretty cool!! I made this dressing and my daughter loved it so made it a couple of times, now I just make a bigger batch 🙂 Kes loves salad dressings even this one and it’s green!!
I just cut in half a bunch of baby tomatoes, an english cucumber, sliced small a green onion or two and chopped some parsley on top, but you could do basil or dill or any other herb. I love adding fresh herbs to salads, they always add a nice flavor and are green!!
– 1/2 cup Olive oil (preferably and cold pressed is best)
– 2 cloves Garlic
– juice of 1 Lemon
– 1/4 cup Cider Vinegar or White Wine vinegar
– 2 tbsp Hemp shells (or called seeds or nuts)
– 1 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt
– a little black Pepper
– 1 tsp Spirulina (Purium Spirulina)
Throw all ingredients in a Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth. Pour over salad and enjoy!! Can easily double the recipe.
