Red Pepper, Hemp & Dill Salad Dressing

| 24 August 2015

Dips, dressings, and sauces are at the heart of any cuisine, raw is not an exception! If greens and salad is your everyday staple like ours, spice them up (or pimp ’em up as we like to say) with nutrient-rich, protein-packed dressings and sauces! No salad will ever be the same again:)

This red pepper, hemp and dill dressing is packed with vitamin C and silica from red peppers and easy-to-absorb protein and omega essential fatty acids from hulled hemp seeds. Amazing.
