I love making a good salad! You can not go wrong with fresh greens, crisp veggies, and a good oil and vinegar. This recipe is for a salad that I threw together the other night for a "Family Game Nite" that I hosted in honor of my sister's birthday. When it is done, the beets transform the dressing into a beautiful bright pink color. It was such a hit that even the picky teen-agers liked it! I really wish that we had a photo for you, but we ate it too fast! Haha!
4 hand fulls: Spring Mix
2 hand fulls: Baby Spinach

1/2 Cup Hemp Seeds (optional)
Layer ingredients in a large bowl.
One Finger of Peeled Fresh Ginger
Honey or Agave to Taste
Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt

Place in blender on slow for 20 seconds and then high for a minute, or until dressing becomes creamy looking and frothy. Pour dressing over salad, mix with tongs, and enjoy! Let us know when you make it!
