Greens Galore Salad Dressing


The Flexible Chef’s Greens Galore salad dressing is the perfect way to transform a basic bed of greens into a crave-worthy salad that will make your taste buds do a little dance.  

“Sure, store-bought dressings may seem like the easier choice—especially when you’re pressed for time—but homemade dressings take just a minute or two to throw together,” says Nealy Fischer, founder of The Flexible Chef. “Plus, when you make it yourself, you get full control over what winds up on your plate.”

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tablespoons Pili Nuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 small sprig fresh tarragon
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup raw spinach
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Store in a refrigerated glass jar for up to 2 days.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Many store-bought salad dressings contain unhealthy additives and preservatives  Not only is this green dressing made of whole real foods packed with nutrients, it’s also downright delicious. The sweet and savory combo also means that you’ll likely reach for salad seconds. As you know, we always encourage you to eat more greens, and this is a great way to do just that.
