  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. In a large bowl, add lettuce, carrots, bell pepper, celery, cucumber, and radishes. Toss to combine. Add pasta; toss until all ingredients are mixed together.
  3. In a blender or food processor, add hemp seeds, almond milk, parsley, lemon juice, chives, dill, vinegar, garlic, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour ranch dressing over the salad; toss to fully coat all ingredients.
  5. Top with coconut bacon, if desired.


*I used chickpea pasta, but you can use any whole-wheat or gluten-free variety you prefer!

**Fresh minced garlic will oxidize the longer it’s stored and go bitter. If you don’t plan to eat your pasta salad right away, I recommend using 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder instead of fresh garlic in the dressing.
