On January 29, 2016

Here’s a superfood spin on this popular salad of days gone by. The hemp- and nut- based dressing is every bit as yummy, and full of protein and fibre.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes

Ingredients
1 head Boston or iceberg lettuce, quartered
75 g (2 1?2 oz) halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1?2 avocado, cubed 1 tablespoon chopped chives

40 g (1 1?2 oz) raw cashews, soaked for 4 to 6 hours
1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons umeboshi vinegar 60 ml (2 fl oz) water

Method
1. For the dressing, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until
smooth. More water can be added, 1?2 tablespoon at a time, until a thick, pourable dressing is achieved.

2. Place each quarter of lettuce on a plate with a few tomatoes and pieces of
chopped avocado. Top with the hemp dressing and sprinkle with the chives.
