Method
1. For the dressing, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until
smooth. More water can be added, 1?2 tablespoon at a time, until a thick, pourable dressing is achieved.

2. Place each quarter of lettuce on a plate with a few tomatoes and pieces of
chopped avocado. Top with the hemp dressing and sprinkle with the chives.
