Hulled Hemp Seed Salad w/ Apple Dressing Recipe

I’m sure you’ve noticed Bob’s Red Mill in the grocery store, but have you stopped to take note of the Hulled Hemp Seed? I kind of thought it wasn’t something that I would ever use, so I never thought much about it. Well, lately we have been searching for ways to increase our nutrition in small and simple ways and I became curious about what options were out there. I’m sure a lot of you are in the same boat. What small changes or additions to your diet could you make in order to make your family healthier without breaking the bank or drastically changing your eating habits? This hulled hemp seed salad with apple dressing is the perfect recipe to show you what we are doing.

Hulled Hemp Seed is just the hemp seed without the shell. It’s a little nutty in flavor, but for the most part it’s quite flavorless, which I kind of love because I can add it to absolutely anything without it changing the flavor of the dish or meal.

Hulled Hemp Seeds are not only delicious and provide an excellent source of protein, they also contain 3 grams of Sea-Free Omega-3 fatty acids and 9 grams of Sea-Free Omega-6 fatty acids per serving. Yummy AND Good for you!

Is Hemp Seed Nutritious?

Hemp seeds are packed with nutrition.

Hemp seeds are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids,  omega-6 and omega-3.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for maintaining heart health.

Omega-6 fats are an important source of energy for the body.

Are Apples Good For You?

Apples are good for you.

They are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and contain antioxidants. 

What Greens Are Healthiest?

6 of the healthiest greens are, Beet Greens, Watercress, Romaine Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Arugula, and Spinach.

For this salad I also wanted a little zip in my dressing. I found a great new vinegar that we really enjoy. In fact, there’s a whole line, so I’ll have to look into all of the other flavors. This one is the Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar, Balsamic Blend. It’s quite delicious and it’s obviously different than just a plain Rice Vinegar or plain Balsamic Vinegar. It added that pop of flavor to the dressing without me needing to add a bunch of different ingredients. Last minute I decided to make it a little creamy, which ended up being really nice with the nutty hemp seed and fruity craisins/apples.

Our favorite #salad #recipe ever! It seems so simple but then when you get that perfect bite with spinach, berry, and brown sugar almonds, a light lemon dressing, good mercy! ohsweetbasil.com
