Broccoli Salad with Creamy Hemp Dressing


Herby Creamy Hemp Dressing:
1 cup hemp seeds (or sub 1/2 cup cashews)
1/2 cup water
2  tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice ( 2 lemons)
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley ( or dill or basil, or a combo- and chives are nice too)

Broccoli Salad:
8 ounces chopped broccoli cone #3
1 cup shredded purple cabbage cone #4
1/4 cup finely sliced or diced red onion cone #4
1/2 cup sliced and quartered radishes (watermelon radishes are pretty) cone #4
1 cup sliced turnips


Make the dressing: Place dressing ingredients (except parsley) in a blender and blend until very smooth. If you need a tablespoon more of water to get the blender going- so be it. Add the Parsley. Blend until chopped. Place in the fridge -this is best chilled. You can make this ahead, will last 3-4 days refrigerated. Make the salad: Finely chop the broccoli and place in a large bowl -you should have about 4 cups. Add the cabbage, radishes, onion, turnips.
Add most of the dressing (you will not need all- BUT at the same time, you want this really creamy and coated very generously!)  Season the salad with more salt and pepper to taste.
Before serving sprinkle with hemp seeds.
