    Go Green Salad

    What You’ll Need:

    A Nutri Bullet
    Measuring Cups & Spoons
    A Salad Bowl
    Salad Tongs
    A Whisk

     

    Ingredients:

    4 Cups Leaf Lettuce, Leaves Torn

    4 Cups Baby Spinach

    An 8-Inch English Cucumber, Diced

    1 Cup Broccoli Florets

    1 Avocado, Diced

    1/2 Cup Green Onions or Chives (Optional)

    1/4 Cup Capers

    1/4 Cup Fresh Herbs of Your Choice (I like fresh dill, parsley & even mint in salads)

    1/2 Tsp Sea Salt

    Fresh Ground Pepper

     

    Dressing:

    1/2 Basil Leaves

    1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

    2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (1/2 Lemon)

    1/2 Tsp Sea Salt

    Shakes of Hot Sauce to Personal Taste

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1. Into a nutri-bullet, add the basil, olive oil lemon juice, sea salt and hot sauce. Blend until emulsified; set aside for now.

     
    2. Into a large salad bowl, add the leaf lettuce, baby spinach, cucumber, broccoli, green onions, capers and fresh herbs; toss lightly. Pour the dressing over the greens; toss gently until each leaf is covered in dressing.

     
    3. Serve and enjoy.

     

    Nina’s Tasty Tip:

    If you’d like to serve this salad to guests for a dinner party, make the dressing and place it in the fridge, covered. Make the salad, place a damp paper towel over the greens and place bowl in the fridge; they will maintain their gorgeous color and texture for a good 12 hours.
