Super Foods Protein packed Garden Fresh Salad

After a nice hard workout of practicing my new dance skills out in the Arizona summer heat I felt the need to load up on Proteins & Greens… I looked in the fridge & saw that I needed to use up my freshly made mung bean sprouts & Probiotic packed Sauerkraut. But what else could I add… oh year I have a garden that still has fresh greens that I can use! So I decided to create a Super Foods Protein packed Garden Fresh Salad.

Okay well now that I’ve got the base of the “Greens” to my salad, now I have to add other Super Foods & create a yummy salad dressing (since I am in the mood for something then than they regular olive oil & balsamic dressing). So I went to the pantry I pulled out the following ingredients:

Almonds 
Avocado Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Cashews
Coconut Oil
Dried Cranberries
Hemp Seeds
Himalayan Salt
Lemon Juice
Nutritional Yeast
Pepper
Pumpkin Seeds

 To make the yummy sauce I place all the following ingredients into my magic bullet & blended up the:


Avocado Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Cashews
Coconut Oil
Himalayan Salt
Lemon Juice
Nutritional Yeast

Pumpkin Seeds
 

Now that Ive got my veggies cut up & the sauce made I added them into the wooden bow & topped with pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, dried cranberries, salt & pepper. This salad was so good & filling, I have some left over for later & feel totally refreshed, satisfied & energized! What was the last salad you created…
