Elevate your Resolution with Vision Greens Lettuce
1 package of Vision Greens Crunchy Green Leaf or Cherry Kiss Red Leaf Lettuce
Lemon Vinaigrette half recipe
1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced
¼ cup shaved Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons pepitas
1 avocado, thinly sliced
¼ cup microgreens
Flaky sea salt, optional
Roasted Tamari Almonds
½ cup raw almonds
½ tablespoon tamari
Roast the almonds: Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the almonds on the sheet and toss with tamari. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until browned. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Assemble the salad. In a large bowl toss the Vision Greens lettuce with a few spoonful’s of the dressing. Add the cucumber, parmesan, pepitas, avocado, and tamari almonds. Drizzle with more dressing and top with microgreens. Season to taste with flaky sea salt, if desired.
Prep Time: 5 minutes mins
Serves 6 to 8
1 x 10-oz. Mason Jar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, grated
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon honey, or maple syrup, optional
1/4 to 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried thyme, optional
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, mustard, salt, pepper, and honey, if using.
Drizzle in the olive oil while whisking and continue to whisk until the dressing is emulsified. Alternatively, combine everything in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake to combine.
If your dressing is too tangy, add more olive oil, to taste.
Add the thyme, if desired, and season to taste. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week. The olive oil will solidify a bit in the fridge. To soften, let the dressing sit at room temp for a few minutes and stir before using.
Makes 1/2 cup.
