Cilantro Mint Dressing

Organic Hemp Seeds are powerhouses of nutrition. Full of beneficial nutrients like zinc, protein and Omega 3 & 6 that can help give our immune system a boost.

This creamy dressing is an excellent choice for green salads, steamed vegetables and pasta salads.

Makes about 1 cup
½ cup organic hemp seeds
½ cup water
¼ cup fresh cilantro*
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
4 teaspoons fresh mint*
1 teaspoon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Organic Fair Trade Red Palm Oil** 
½ teaspoons sea salt
Pinch of black pepper

Directions

  1. And place all the ingredients in a blender and purée until creamy. Adjust seasonings, if desired.
  2. Use immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers.

*As the seasons change, or to better suit your dietary preferences, and  what you have in stock, you can swap other fresh herbs for cilantro and mint such as basil, chives, dill, oregano and parsley.

**You can substitute Organic extra virgin olive oil or Organic sesame oil for the Red Palm Oil, if you like. I do recommend that you try the Red Palm Oil it has a buttery taste.
