Head over to our Submit a Recipe page! I throw together plenty of salads in any given week, the variety of toppings dependent on what I have in my fridge. Here is one that I dreamed up for lunch that happened to be abundant in the color green. The greener the better when it comes to salads, I suppose. I thought a creamy Dijon dressing would compliment this particular salad recipe nicely, so I whipped up a simple one, but feel free to use your imagination for your own dressing desires. Gracious Green Salad Recipe Ingredients 1 head green leaf lettuce 1oz firm or extra firm tofu (cubed) 1/4 cup sweet potato (cubed and roasted) 1/4 cup broccoli stalk (shaved and roasted) 4 Brussels sprouts (quartered and roasted) 1/2 cucumber (cubed) 1/4 avocado (cubed) 1/4 cup kohlrabi (cubed) 1/2 tablespoon pine nuts 1/2 tablespoon pepitas Directions Chop lettuce and place in a large bowl. Toss lettuce with dressing. If you are not using the Creamy Dijon, use dressing of your choice. Add all other ingredients and lightly toss. Creamy Dijon Dressing Ingredients 1 teaspoon whole grain Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon plain Greek yogurt 1/2 teaspoon honey 1/4 teaspoon dried basil (optional) 1 pinch sea salt 1 pinch ground black peppercorn Directions Combine all ingredients and stir well.
