Greenest Green Salad
My best green salad features sweet asparagus, crispy celery, mild green onion, protein packed edamame and salty pistachios. I finish it off with a homemade Green Goddess dressing that will have you wishing the salad bowl never ends.
- 8 cups baby spinach
- 1 cup asparagus, blanched and cut in 1 inch pieces
- ½ cup green onion, sliced
- 1 cups edamane, shelled and cooked
- ½ cup pistachios, shelled
- 2 tablespoons feta cheese, reduced fat
- 1 recipe homemade Green Goddess Dressing ***
Pile spinach on the bottom of bowl.
Line up the rest of the ingredients.
Sprinkle with feta cheese and serve with the homemade Green Goddess dressing.
To blanch asparagus, put spears in boiling water for one minute. Immediately transfer to a ice bath to stop cooking. Shelled edamame can be found in the frozen section of the grocery store and cooked in the microwave.
