5 minute recipes – Salad with a Nutty Hemp oil Dressing

5 minute recipes - salad with a nutty hemp dressing

Now I’m a busy person and a self-confessed master at healthy, 5 minute recipes. My schedule pretty much goes Eat, Sleep, School, Work, Study, Gym REPEAT! The very last thing I want to do at 7 pm when I get home is cook myself a heathy meal. 

We are taught that we must invest a large amount of time (and money) into adapting a healthy lifestyle. This could not be further from the truth! 

Over the years I have learnt that not only can a healthy diet save you money, but it can also save you time! In the time it takes for you to order a McDonalds meal, you could have already made this delicious 5-minute salad, PLUS prepped some extra for the next days lunch! 

Salad for dinner is my number one go-to! It is quick, easy, refreshing, healthy and you can put just about whatever you want in it.

When it comes to making salads it is all dependant on your dressing. This nutty hemp oil dressing made with Vasse Valley Hemp Seed Oil can be added to ANY kind of salad, all topped off with Vasse Valley Roasted Hemp Seed Crumble for that extra CRUNCH!

About me

Hi, my name is Emma and I am an Aussie health and fitness fanatic. My health journey first began back in 2016 where I was dealing with some gut issues. To combat this, I decided to fix my diet and adopt a healthier way of living.

In 2017, I started my Instagram page @nourishbyemma to share my recipes and food. Little did I know I would be doing the same thing 3 years down the track!

When Vasse Valley asked me to do some recipes for them I jumped at the chance. Hemp seed is such a new food, it has only been legal in Australia since 2017.

If you like this salad recipe please share it with your friends. Vasse Valley are trying hard to kick-start the Australian hemp industry and need YOU and your friends to be making hemp seed a staple ingredient in your pantry.
