In the heat of summer, dinner should be refreshing! We’re here to give you that refreshment with this radish and cucumber salad!
This delicious cucumber, radish, and dill salad is crunchy and adds a nutritional kick to your daily diet. We often see radishes as those additions to dishes that get pushed to the corner of the plate and forgotten in our consumption of dishes. These spicy and crunchy vegetables can help our digestion break down toxins in the body. Radishes have a very high amount of vitamin C that helps our immune system stay strong and healthy.
When you pair radishes with cucumbers, you have a hydration powerhouse. Both of these vegetables have high water content that keeps your body hydrated and nourished all season long.
The real star in this recipe is the hemp heart dressing. Hemp hearts are a great nutrition boost. Hemp hearts have a natural nutty flavor which adds an incredible taste to dishes or salad dressing. Hemp hearts are rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 which helps maintain a healthy body and brain function. Our body does not produce them, so we need to get them from food sources. Hemp hearts are rich in plant-based protein, so they are a great way for vegans or vegetarians to amass a large amount of protein. A few tablespoons of hemp hearts have over 11 grams of protein which is comparable to a steak. Hemp hearts are easy to digest so your body doesn’t need to go into overdrive trying to digest them.
This salad will keep up to four days in an airtight container in the fridge.
