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.

  1. RACHEL, WHEN YOU SAY ONE LARGE BUNCH OF FRESH CILANTRO – HOW MUCH DO YOU MEAN EXACTLY? IS THAT ONE WHOLE BUNCH THAT YOU WOULD PURCHASE AT THE STORE OR HALF OF THAT? I MADE THIS DRESSING MULTIPLE TIMES AND IT COMES OUT WATERY NOT AT ALL CREAMY. I THOUGHT MAYBE I WAS PUTTING TOO MUCH LIME JUICE SO I CUT THAT DOWN BUT STILL WATERY. ANY SUGGESTIONS? I MUST NOT BE PUTTING ENOUGH OF SOMETHING? ANYONE ANY SUGGESTIONS??? THANK YOU!!!
