Micro greens, spring lettuce and our favorite dressing recipes

We’ve been experimenting with micro greens this spring and WOW are they beautiful and delicious.

I love seeing peas sprout!

Combine the micros with some of the great lettuce that we’ve got this spring and you’ve got the makings for a beautiful salad.

 

 

And now that you have the perfect salad, here are three of our favorite dressing recipes to try.

Italian Dressing

1/2 c red wine vinegar

2 t minced or pressed garlic

2 t Italian seasoning

2 t fine ground sea salt

1 t black pepper

1 t ground mustard

3/4 c olive

Blend well and enjoy! Oh, and by the way, we use WAY more garlic then the recipe calls for.

 

Wild Greens Salad Dressing

4 cloves garlic

1/2 c balsamic vinegar

2 T Tamari

1/2 c nutritional yeast

2 T fresh thyme

2 T Dijon mustard

2 T honey

Blend all of this well and then add the following slowly while the blender is running.

1 c olive oil

1 c water

Enjoy on all kinds of mixed greens salads.

 

Sweet Salad Dressing (isn’t that an original name?! someone please help me come up with a better one)

1/4 c white grape juice concentrate

3 T white wine or cider vinegar

2 t olive oil

1/2 t salt

1/4 t onion powder

Put all in your dressing bottle and shake well.

 

Enjoy the tastes of spring!
