Hemp Caesar Salad
John Wood

Serve over a  a salad of romaine lettuce, red cherry tomato, yellow cherry tomato and halved macadamia nuts. 

Garnish with a sprinkle of hemp nuts and nutritional yeast. 

NOTE:  Hemp oil is higher than flax seed in Omega 3 and 6.

Hemp oil is hard to find. Ask at your local health food store. Dulse is a seaweed product that gives a Caesar dressing that "anchovy" flavor and can be found in the bulk section of your health food store.
