Creamiest Green Goddess Iceberg Salad

Hand down the best creamy and refreshing salad ever. This is definitely not a traditional “ green goddess “ salad dressing but just a play on words to describe how magical it really is. The internet has taken over by storm and green salads are all the talk right now so I decided to make a delicious version of it. Thank you to my dear friend Kat for the inspiration. Although this is a different version and recipe she inspired me to make this video for you all. You will need:

Ingredients
  

For the Salad:

  • 2 small tortillas — optional
  • avocado oil spray
  • ½ iceberg lettuce finely chopped
  • ½ english cucumber finely chopped

For the Dressing:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • ½ cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • ¼ jalapeño optional
  • ½ of an avocado
  • ½ cup parsley
  • salt to taste
  • splash of cold water if needed
  • 1 tablespoon honey dijon mustard

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 450F. Cut the tortilla into triangles and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Spray with avocado oil spray and bake for 6-8 minutes or until lightly golden. Take it out and let it cool. Slice and dice half of a iceberg lettuce and do the same for the cucumber.
  • Add the lettuce and cucumber to a bowl with any protein of choice — I added one diced chicken breast you can use chickpeas as well. For the dressing add everything to a blender and blend.
  • Pour the dressing on top and enjoy as is or scoop with the tortilla chips.

Notes

Feel free to use anything you love like cubed chicken breast or chickpeas for extra protein. This salad is delicious but you will need to keep the dressing separately in the fridge because it will go soggy faster unless you use cabbage or kale instead. If you don’t like honey Dijon mustard, simply leave it out or you can use regular Dijon and add a touch of maple syrup, honey, or agave to it. Cilantro instead or parsley is more than okay as well. This dressing is not only good on Salad it’s AMAZING on wraps, on its own as a dip, on top of chicken skewers or anything else you like
