Don’t get me wrong, I loveeeee my veggies, but I’m not a huge salad lover. I always feel like I need something a little more filling than salad but still try and find ways to get myself to eat my greens. this salad is SO simple and SO tasty. The lime juice as a dressing adds so much flavor and is completely fat-free. The hemp seeds and avocado help give the salad a “creamy” texture so you don’t feel like you’re missing out on cheese or dairy. This is great served as either a side salad, or feel free to add in extra avocado to eat it as a meal.
2 heads of romaine, chopped into thin shreds
1 Tomato, chopped
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced
1/2 avocado, diced
1 T. hemp seeds
Juice from 1/2 a lime
Coarse sea salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Directions: Cut up all the vegetables and add to a bowl. Sprinkle the salad with hemp seeds (can add more if you want an even creamier texture). Squeeze 1/2 of a lime over the salad and add coarse sea salt and pepper to taste. Toss and enjoy!
