Instructions

  1. Once you figure out which colorful produce items you will be using, wash and prep them. It is best to cut everything into bite-size pieces. Add all of the ingredients to a large salad bowl, or you can divide them into little bowls or containers for prepped lunches.
  2. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a creamy consistency.
  3. You can keep the dressing in a glass jar in the fridge for about a week.
