Super Green Salad 🥗
If you are an avid TikTok watcher, then you may have seen the ‘famous’ green goddess salad trending EVERYWHERE, so we decided to recreate it with our own hempy twist instead. This salad is packed full of healthy vitamins, healthy fats and a whole lot of hemp.
Some of you may wonder why we use Good Hemp Oil instead of olive oil in this recipe – well we will explain. Good Hemp oil is considered one of the world’s healthiest oils – just ask Jamie Oliver, who drizzled us straight over ice cream. It’s cold-pressed from the hemp seed, (which happens to come from one of the most sustainable plants on the planet) and naturally rich in Omega 3 – just 1 tbsp of Good Hemp Oil contains 94% of your daily recommended intake of Omega 3 (that’s 25 times more than olive oil). It has one of the lowest amounts of saturated fats and the highest content of polyunsaturated fat (that’s the good stuff). Oh and it tastes good too, with a light and nutty flavour.
