Summer Salad & Dressing...

I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite salads to make, especially with the Fourth coming up this weekend! I love to pair this salad with Tri-Tip Steak or BBQ chicken made on the Traeger. The dressing is also a huge hit and pairs amazing with any type of BBQ sauce!

Salad Ingredients:

- Mixed Greens (I use use a box of Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix)

- 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes (I sprinkle mine with sea salt)

- 2 or 3 Avocados

- ½ Cup Black Beans (rinsed)

- ½ Cup Yellow Corn (fresh off cob or frozen)

- ⅓ Cup Feta Cheese

Salad Instructions:

- Dice tomatoes and avocados

- In a large mixing bowl, mix all salad toppings w/lettuce.

- Serve with dressing and desired protein!

Cilantro Lime Dressing:

By Two Peas & Their Pod

- 1 large bunch fresh cilantro

- ½ cup Stonyfield Plain Whole Milk Yogurt

- 1 garlic clove

- Juice of 2 limes

- 1 teaspoon honey (I like to add extra honey)

- ½ teaspoon kosher salt

- ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

- ½ jalapeno (seeds and stem removed, optional)

Dressing Instructions:

- Add the cilantro, yogurt, garlic, honey, salt and jalapeño (if using), into a blender or a food processor. Add in lime juice with a press and put the lid on and blend. With the motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil and blend until smooth. Adjust with a little more salt or honey if desired.

- Pour the dressing into a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. The dressing will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
