Each month we invite Anel Van Der Merwe from the Kind (but Good) Food blog to create a plant-based recipe for us using CBD. On the menu this time? A summery CBD Salad Dressing. Enjoy!
"Keeping things fresh and vibrant for you on the food front in this heat, I’ve got a beautiful Nectarine and Cucumber salad for you today.
Perfect as a side to some crispy miso tofu or chickpeas and some roasted sweet potato or served on its own for a lovely light lunch (just pump up the ingredient amounts a little if you wanna go the main meal route!).
But the real star of the show here is the epic Toasted Sesame CBD Salad Dressing.
So easy to throw together, deep in flavour from the toasted sesame oil, packed with zingyness from the vinegar, balanced with the sweet-salty combo of maple syrup and soy sauce and just a hint of hemp (and a dose of goodness) from Goodleaf 600mg CBD oil.
Each serving of dressing contains about 10mg CBD and will keep you calm and collected while you flow into the new year.
So - make this beautiful salad, sit down for a moment of quiet, and enjoy the nourishment it’ll bring. And make it asap while the nectarines and tomatoes are at their juiciest and sweetest!"

Toasted Sesame CBD Salad Dressing
- 2 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
- 20 drops 600mg Goodleaf CBD oil
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 clove garlic, finely grated
(makes 2 side salad servings)
Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together with a fork. Set aside until ready to use.
And for the salad...
Slice 2 nectarines, 1/3 of a cucumber, and a big handful of cherry tomatoes and place on top of a big handful per plate of baby lettuce leaves (some plain ol’ rocket will work here too!).
Divide 2 small, thinly sliced spring onions, a handful of crushed roasted + salted peanuts, a sprinkle of toasted black sesame seeds if you have them (amazing but not necessary!) and a generous drizzle of the salad dressing on to each plate.
