Green Goddess Dressing


This creamy but not-too-rich, tangy but-not-too-puckery, smooth but packed with flavor dressing is a great way to make a simple, two-ingredient salad sing. No need to add a whole lot of extras here, just grab the freshest head of lettuce you can get your hands on. Our favorite variation? Blend in an avocado and add 4-5 sprigs of cilantro and a touch of lime juice for the perfect dipping sauce.

We were lucky enough to land on some fresh garbanzo beans at the farmers market this morning and gave them a quick two-minute dip in boiling water, strained and fried them with 1 Tbsp of oil in a hot skillet, tossing them with salt before adding them to this bright salad for a crunchy finish.
