Raw Power Salad

Raw Power SaladThis salad is protein rich and extremely satisfying.

Other greens can be substituted or added, so use whatever you have on hand, such as romaine, Swiss chard, or even cabbage. Makes 4-6 servings.

Salad

2 cups packed baby spinach
2 cups packed red leaf lettuce
2 cups packed, shredded kale
2 small avocados, sliced
1 cup broccoli sprouts
1 cup sunflower sprouts (or additional cup of broccoli sprouts or other sprout.)
2 cups chopped tomatoes
2/3 cup dulse strips
½ cup hemp seeds
1 tsp spirulina, chlorella, or blue-green algae.
¼ cup Protein Crunch Mix (optional) See below.*

Dressing

3 Tbs lemon juice
3 Tbs flax oil
1 tsp crushed garlic
Sea salt to taste

Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl
Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad.  Toss gently.

Nutrition note – Spirulina, chlorella, and blue-green algae are a bit of an acquired taste.  Try just a sprinkle and work your way up, and soon you might find yourself craving it.  They are high incomplete protein and B vitamins, including B 12.

*Protein Crunch Mix

This high-protein mix (about11 grams per1/4 cup) makes a great addition to salads when you want a little crunch, or just eat it as a snack. I keep a small container of it in my car for when I’m on the go.

1-1/2 cups hulled buckwheat groats, soaked 1 hour
¾ cup sunflower seeds, soaked 4-6 hours
¾ cup pumpkin seeds, soaked 4-6 hours
5 Tbs Tamari
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder.

Rinse and drain the buckwheat groats very well along with the sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
In a medium size bowl, combine all the ingredients and spread over 2 dehydrator trays lined with nonstick sheets.  Dry at 110 degrees for 8 hours or until completely dry.
The mix will keepfor1 month in an airtight container.
