Snap Pea + Spicy Green Slaw with Brazil Nuts + Apricot Hemp Heart Dressing

Ingredients

1/2 cup Brazil nuts (14 - 16), roughly chopped

6 dried unsweetened unsulfured apricots

¼ cup hemp hearts

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 Tbs. lemon juice

¼ tsp. sea salt plus more to taste

¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper plus more to taste

1 cucumber (preferably English)

2 cups snap peas, sliced into thin matchsticks (about 2 ½ cups sliced)

2 cups finely shredded spicy greens (arugula, watercress or mustard greens)

1 small shallot, minced

Directions

Place a small bowl next to the stove.

In a medium skillet over medium-low heat, toast the Brazil nuts, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the candied nuts to the bowl and set aside.

Submerge the apricots in boiling water to soften, about 10 minutes, then transfer to a blender. Add hemp hearts, olive oil, lemon juice ¼ cup water and blend until smooth. Refrigerate to chill.

Slice the cucumber down the middle the long way, then scoop out the seeds with a spoon to remove. Chop the cucumber across the center into matchstick lengths, then slice each piece into thin matchsticks and transfer to a large bowl.

Add the chopped snap peas, greens, shallot and ⅔ of the Brazil nuts to the bowl and gently toss with the dressing to coat, seasoning with salt and pepper. Garnish with remaining Brazil nuts.
