Slice & Dice

Be sure to slice and dice your veggies so that they are easy for you and your guests to enjoy. The secret to a good salad are smaller and even pieces. This is so that you are not struggling to eat your salad with large, uneven bites. I chose this mix of all green vegetables, but the green veggies are interchangeable. I have made this salad with pea-pods, snow peas, green peas, sprouts. Really any green veggies of your choice.

Avocado replaces the mayonnaise in this Green Dressing recipe which makes it a little more nutritious.

The Green Dressing Comes Out So Thick And Rich
This salad dressing is also great on tacos!

  1. Add your lettuce and spinach to a bowl and give it a good toss.
  2. Layer your veggies around the bowl artisitcally. I present the salad this way, but toss it before serving so that it is easier for everyone to get all of the Green Veggies.
  3. Sprinkle the salad with some salt (I use Kosher Salt) Black Pepper and The Dried Parsley
  4. For the dressing add the two avocados to your blender, the ranch packets, the sour cream and the rice wine vinegar, blend until smooth.
  5. Add the parsley a little at a time to the blender, and blend until smooth.
  6. The dressing will keep in the fridge for at least a week. I serve the dressing on the side, but you can also toss with the salad before serving if you wish.
  7. For Christmas you can add cherry tomatoes to the salad and drape rosemary clippings on the salad to make it look more festive for the holiday.
Add some red to make this salad festive for Christmas!
