This salad is so hearty and yet so light tasting. Often times I don’t want a salad for dinner or a main meal because, well, I just get so hungry I want something more filling. But, this salad does the trick! It’s loaded with protein and fiber. The avocado adds an extra kick to keep you full for a long time. Feel free to add in other veggies, adjust the quantities or sub other veggies for this dish. Also, I want to note, because I used avocado and hemp seeds in this dish, I used lemon juice as the dressing not only for its cleansing and alkalizing properties, but to keep fat content down. Enjoy!
