This is the perfect refreshing spring salad! The hemp seeds pack a protein punch, to make this salad filling and high in nutrition. The lemon makes it crisp and tangy – bring it to a dinner party or BBQ, it’ll be a huge hit. Feel free to mix it up and use a different green (like spinach) or chopped up tomatoes instead of bell peppers. Get creative with it! Either way, you’re getting a big dose of delicious and nourishing veggies.
