There's nothing that can bring you closer to the earth than a meal filled with wonderful, seasonal veggies. Crunchy and fresh, it will stick to your ribs due to the addition of hemp hearts in the dressing (and a little sprinkle on top will kick it up a notch too.) Make a big bowl of this to share with the ones you love!
