Cabbage Hemp Salad

Some things are just too good not to share.  So I will deviate from the norm of plants, gardening and design to share a really yummy and healthy recipe with you: Cabbage Hemp SaladPopSugar shared it with me and I want to pass along the deliciousness! It's described as a detox salad which is all the rage right now.  Not sure what it's supposed to be detoxing but my family and I can't get enough of it.  Try this recipe and you will understand why. 
Known as a rule breaker in the garden world, I also break them in the kitchen.
I didn't have any Hemp oil so I subbed Grapeseed Oil:  Delish!
The first time I made this we had lemons, not limes and: It worked!  (but limes are better, I found the second time.) 
Besides the hemp seeds, I added some chia seeds into the mix as well.

Cabbage Hemp Salad

3 cups cabbage (mix of purple and green), finely shredded
1/4 cup red and yellow peppers, diced
1 1/2 avocados, diced with pit removed
3 tablespoons hemp oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup hemp seeds
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Massage and mix with your hands to tenderize the cabbage and cream the avocado, and serve.


  1. I'm also growing some veggies indoor using my 1000W LED Grow Light that I bought after reading these Reviews on bloomshower. And Now, I'm planning to make best use of my veggies for making a delicious salad using your recipe. Thanks.
