Hemp and Citrus-Shallot Dressing
Here is a great all-purpose creamy salad dressing that is SUPER healthy and you can use it on just about any greens, veggies, grains, even add some cooked chicken or flaked salmon if you are into that. Hemp seeds, a great form of protein, can be eaten raw, sprinkled on salads, granola, and yogurt as well as whipped into a delicious creamy dressing that has so many flavor variations and takes just a few minutes to prepare.

Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1 orange
