A healthy greens salad made with pumpkin seed oil - an oil with an impressive amount of nutrients and essential fatty acids, and a slew of other good-for-you greens and herbs!
Pumpkin Seed and Herb Salad:
Pumpkin Seed and Lemon Salad Dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon raw pumpkin seed oil
  • ¼ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ½ garlic clove, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  1. For the salad, rinse the kale under hot water for 30 seconds or so to soften up and make it easier on digestion. Chop fresh herbs and add all salad ingredients to a large bowl.
  2. For the dressing, add all ingredients to a jar, shake and pour over your salad.
This recipe is for 1 serving of salad. Feel free to double, triple or quadruple up if needed (I highly recommend it!) If you cannot find kale, any green will work. If you cannot find pumpkin seed oil, choose another omega-rich oil like flax seed oil or hemp seed oil. Alternatively, you could use a high quality olive oil. Hemp seeds can be replaced with any seed you'd like - pumpkin, sunflower, etc.
If you do not want to make the Parmesan, just sub out with 2-3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast flakes added right to the salad.
