Meatless Monday: Add hemp seeds to summer salads

Note: This is the second in a three-part Meatless Monday series on incorporating hemp seeds into recipes.

Last week, I shared a recipe for basil pesto made with hemp seeds, a superfood high in protein and healthy fats.

If you liked that summery recipe, you’ll love the Speedy Summer Hemp Power Salad from Oh She Glows, a great source for vegan recipes.

The salad is like a garden in bowl, with fresh tomatoes, red bell pepper, dill, cucumber and corn. Adding protein-rich hemp seeds make this fresh salad even more satisfying.

The salad tastes great on its own, but I also enjoy it salsa-style with blue corn tortilla chips.
