I made this green goddess salad last summer for my girlfriends and it knocked us all off our feet. It’s a vegan pesto dressing with all the green veggies you have on hand. Feel free to improvise anywhere you see fit! Nuts, greens and oil in the dressing can be subbed out for other varieties you have on hand and you can do that for the veggies in the salad as well. Go wild.
- 1 small head green cabbage (or iceberg lettuce), finely diced
- 3-4 cucumbers, finely diced
- 1/4 cup chives, finely diced
