For the Salad:
2 cups romaine or other lettuce
1/4 cup beets, chopped
1/4 cup carrots, shredded
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup no-oil-added hummus (see note)
handful sprouts
1/4 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
For the Dressing:
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup hemp seeds
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Add lettuce to bowl and top with remaining salad ingredients.

Blend dressing ingredients in a high-powered blender and drizzle desired amount over the top of salad.

Dressing makes enough for several salads. Place leftover dressing in a sealed container and refrigerate. It will keep for up to 4 days.

Note: Prepare hummus with your favorite no-salt, no-oil hummus recipe or buy a good low-sodium store brand.

Wow, first time I saw this one.  Thanks Jenna.  I'll look for a hummus recipe on the Fuhrman site.  Sounds wonderful.

The beets in the picture look steamed.  Do you buy organic bottled beets or do you steam them fresh?
