Hemp Seed and Avocado Salad

Ah, salad! There are so many ways you can dress up a salad to your liking; adding vegetables, fruits, proteins, nuts, and so much more. You can make salad your main dish or as a side, but whatever the case, it’s certainly a versatile and typically healthy dish.

This salad recipe, provided by inmotionlife, kicks it up a notch by adding hemp seed and avocado! Hemp is quite the handy plant with a plethora of benefits.
