Super yummy salad recipe

I don’t know if anyone will ever read this blog. If you’re here – cool! Welcome! If not, and I’m just shouting my recipes into the void… well, that’s good enough for me.

So, without further ado: my awesome salad recipe!

Awesome Sauce
1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt (I used truffle salt!)
Various herbs and spices (basil and oregano especially!)
A drizzle of olive oil

Super Salad
1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped
1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
1 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds, chopped (sensing a pattern here?)
As much Awesome Sauce as you want
2 tbsp flax meal, sprinkled over the dressing
Garnish with chia and hemp seeds

Mix your Awesome Sauce in a measuring cup. The honey is an emulsifier, and the red wine vinegar helps to thin out the dressing and make it tangy and delicious. I like to add hemp seeds to give it a nice crunch, but you can skip that step if you’d like. Whisk it all together and reserve.

Chop your romaine and dump it in a wide, flat bowl. Then chop your eggs and pumpkin seeds and mix it into the salad (or leave it all on top and mix later!). Pour your Awesome Sauce onto the salad, then sprinkle flax meal and whatever other yummies you want on top. Eat up!
