    Thinly slice kale and onion and add to a large salad bowl. Pour the dressing over and mix well to combine. Top with hemp seeds and more nutritional yeast if desired. Serve and enjoy!

  4. 4

    Substitutions: No anchovy, omit. No hemp seeds, omit or replace with sunflower seeds. No nutritional yeast, omit but it will be missing that cheesy flavour.
