It's Week 4 of my "less meat" resolution, and we've been eating a TON of vegetables and feeling really great. Lately, one of our favorite no-meat meals is this Green, Green Salad with homemade Green Goddess dressing (herbs, lemon juice, and yogurt) inspired by a salad I had at one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants here in Chicago. It's really filling, healthy, and as you can tell from the name, everything in the salad is GREEN!
