Get Your Greens Salad
This healthy salad is loaded with all things green! It is one of my favorite lunches! You dress the salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing or your favorite salad dressing!
Recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod
For the Salad:
- 4 cups packed spinach baby kale, or a mix
- 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
- 1 cup chopped broccoli florets cut into small, bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup shelled and cooked edamame
- 1 medium cucumber sliced
- 1 large avocado sliced
For the Creamy Avocado Dressing:
- 1 avocado
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and black pepper to taste
In a large bowl, combine spinach/kale, pistachios, broccoli, edamame, cucumber, and avocado. Drizzle salad with your choice of dressing. If you want to go green all the way, sever with Creamy Avocado Dressing. Recipe is below.
For the Creamy Avocado Dressing, in a blender, add the minced garlic, avocado, lemon juice, and olive oil. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times. If the dressing is too thick, you can add a little water until you reach the your desired consistency. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve with salad! The dressing will keep in the fridge for about a week.
