Prep Time:




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.
  2. Chop fresh herbs and add all salad ingredients to a large bowl.
  3. For the dressing, add all ingredients to a jar, shake and pour over your salad.


Serving size: This recipe is for 1 serving of salad. Feel free to double, triple or quadruple up if needed (I highly recommend it!)

Kale: If you cannot find kale, any green will work.

Pumpkin seed oil: If you cannot find pumpkin seed oil, you could use avocado oil or olive oil.

Hemp hearts: can be replaced with any seed you’d like – pumpkin, sunflower, etc.

Parmesan: 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.
