We love salad. It's an almost daily visitor to my dinner table. But there's only so many ways you can combine greens, tomatoes and cucumber before you get, well, a little bored. Last night I went for a shredded veggie salad with a homemade sweet dressing.
To the bowl add:
1/4-1/2 head of thinly sliced cabbage
1 zucchini, grated
2 carrots, grated
Edamame, cooked according to package directions
In the blender combine:
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 TBSP dijon mustard
1/4 white onion, chopped
Blend on high, then add a pinch of sea salt and 1 TBSP poppy seed, pulse the blender a few times to mix those in.
Dressing recipe, slightly modified, from Green Smoothie Girl, Robyn Openshaw.
Toss the salad with the dressing and chill until ready to eat.
