Ingredients

Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice plus more to taste
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley leaves chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • ½ bunch chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup blanched raw almonds or 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds soaked
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 clove garlic minced, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon natural salt plus more to taste
  • ½ cup water plus more as needed

Salad:

  • 2 zucchini
  • 8 cups mixed leafy greens like baby spinach, arugula, or micro greens
  • 1/4 head purple cabbage cored and shredded
  • 2 cups julienned broccoli stalks or commercial broccoli slaw or 2 cups peeled, seeded, and diced or julienned cucumber
  • 2 avocados pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions white and green parts, finely chopped
  • 1 cup roughly chopped raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup hemp sunflower, or pumpkin seeds
  • Dash Natural salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Dressing:

  • Place all ingredients into your high power blender in the order listed and secure lid.
  • Puree on high for about one minute until smooth and creamy.
  • Tweak flavors to taste (you might want more lemon juice, garlic, or salt).
  • This dressing should have the consistency of thin mayo, but add a little more water to thin it out if you prefer. It can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Salad:
  • To assemble the salad, shave the zucchini lengthwise into strips with a vegetable peeler, discarding the seedy core.
  • In a large serving bowl, toss together the zucchini strips, greens, cabbage, broccoli, avocados, green onions, almonds, and seeds.
  • Add the dressing to your preference and toss well.
  • Season with salt and pepper and pass any remaining dressing at the table.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments to enter our weekly photo contest! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes
