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. 1 head green leaf lettuce
  2. 1oz firm or extra firm tofu (cubed)
  3. 1/4 cup sweet potato (cubed and roasted)

  5. 4 Brussels sprouts (quartered and roasted)
  6. 1/2 cucumber (cubed)
  7. 1/4 avocado (cubed)
  8. 1/4 cup kohlrabi (cubed)
  9. 1/2 tablespoon pine nuts
  10. 1/2 tablespoon pepitas

Directions

  1. Chop lettuce and place in a large bowl.
  2. Toss lettuce with dressing. If you are not using the Creamy Dijon, use dressing of your choice.
  3. Add all other ingredients and lightly toss.

    Unless your dressing is actually telling your salad how beautiful it is, or how delicious, it is complementing it, not complimenting it. :)
