No-Meat Meal: Green, Green Salad

spinach saladIt'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!


Green Green Salad

Raw baby spinach leaves

Pea pods

Edamame, shelled

Cucumber, peeled and sliced

Avocado, sliced

Green onions, sliced

Any other green veggies/food of your choosing

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon or dill
