Raspberry, Chicken, Feta and Hemp Salad for #TheSaladBar

I have joined another monthly group and this one is all about salads!! I love a big huge fresh salad for dinner. Nothing better!! There are so many variations it is simply endless. Instead of adding all the links in we have a linky party. So at the bottom of the post click into see all the wonderful recipes. With summer almost here, these will be so helpful for a fast, nutritious and delicious meal.

The Salad Bar (Custom)

This month’s theme is berries so that is an easy one!! We all love berries here. The little extra I added to this salad is hemp seeds. I know it conjures up images of marijuana and hippies but it is a different variety of the same cannabis plant. Hemp is a seed, a high protein seed containing all nine of the essential amino acid, just like flax. It also has high amounts of fatty acids and fiber. It contains vitamin E and trace minerals. Hmmm, that’s a pretty nice thing to add to your salad plus it tastes so good. I hope you love all of our salads. ENJOY!!

    Yum.! I always mean to use raspberries more than I do…I tend to grab strawberries or blackberries. Never have seen hemp seeds, but am pretty sure I could find them at Central Market or TJs since those places seem to have everything!!

    I thinkk I could probably drink that dressing all by itself! Hemp seeds are a fantastic addition, I throw them into everything from salads to smoothies to cereal and granola to peanut butter sandwiches…I just love their grassy flavor. No pun intended ;P.

    Well you took all of the fun out of this salad for me…just kidding, I look forward to trying it out. What about strawberries instead of raspberries?
