Green Goddess Spring Salad

  2 rater(s)

Spring is the perfect season to enjoy as many fresh ingredients, and new ingredients, as many new produce items are available. As you known, we love to eat with the seasons! That’s why we’ve paired this green goddess dressing with juicy tangerine, creamy avocado, and a crisp bowl of spring mixed greens.

Green goddess dressing has seen a large increase in popularity due to social media food videos. After people see how easy the dressing is to make, in addition to how nutritious it is, they want to make it. Although green goddess recipes vary, the general recipe calls for a lot of fresh herbs, lemon juice, oil, vinegar, and seasonings. In the case of this recipe, we abandoned the raw vegan nature and went straight to veganism. Why is that? Well, we decided to use vegan yogurt to enhance the creaminess of the dressing. Besides that yogurt, everything else in this recipe is raw vegan. Should you choose to eliminate the yogurt, the dressing will still taste great, but it won’t be as creamy.

Spring mixed greens offer a variety of lettuces that are harvested in early spring. Typically, the mix includes spinach, red leaf lettuce, and romaine lettuce, but varieties can vary by brand, location, and availability. Eating a mixed bag of greens like this is a great way to get your daily dose of leafy greens. Plus, you don’t have to worry about chopping a head of lettuce if you use this bag, and that’s one less thing to prep!
