Green Goddess Salad Recipe
I made this Green Goddess Salad last summer for my girlfriends and it knocked us all off our feet. It is a vegan pesto dressing with all the green veggies you have on hand. Feel free to improvise anywhere you see fit! Nuts, greens and oil in the dressing can be subbed out for other varieties you have on hand, and you can do that for the veggies in the salad as well. Go wild!
This salad stays delicious in the refrigerator for up to a week! It tastes great alone, but my favorite is to eat it with chips like salsa. You can also use it on sandwiches or tacos.
Ingredients for Green Goddess Salad
1 small head green cabbage
3-4 baby cucumbers (or 1 large cucumber)
1/4 cup chives
1 bunch green onions or scallions
1 cup basil leaves
1 cup freshspinach
2 cloves garlic
1 small shallot
2 lemons, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup nuts of your choice (I used raw, unsalted cashews and walnuts)
Wash and chop all of the salad ingredients with a sharp knifeas small as you would like (I recommend confetti-sized). Place in a large bowl.
Add all of the liquid salad dressing ingredients to a blender(olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar). Add the rest of the dressing ingredients to the same blender.
Blend until your dressing is a thick, pourable consistency.
Pour the dressing over salad ingredients.
