Tasty Tuesday - Hemp Kale Salad

Hemp Kale Salad
Although kale salads are a staple in our diets, this one is a new favorite and will be making it's way into regular rotation! Caitlin added a twist by added hemp seeds in place of nuts or sunflower seeds. Like flax, hemp is a high protein and fiber seed and contains all 9 essential amino acids - and provides good texture to a salad! This is a great post workout meal because of the protein and veggies.

2 c kale, roughly chopped
1/2 small avocado
3 oz grilled chicken, diced
1/4 red pepper, chopped
2 tsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp dried cranberries
1/2 lemon, juiced
Add kale and avocado to a mixing bowl and mix with your hands until the leaves are coated in avocado. Add remaining ingredients and toss with lemon juice. Enjoy!
