3-INGREDIENT lemon garlic dressing

This is one of my favorite bagged salads to get from Costco. It’s a very large bag, which should surprise no one, because: COSTCO. It reminds me of my beloved Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Mix, except with more of everything! I always make this dressing with I make my…

 

NTK Slaw Recipe

 

The bagged salad from Costco contains: Broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, roasted pumpkin seeds, and a poppyseed dressing.

 

Here’s the thing though: I don’t enjoy sweet salad dressings. I also don’t enjoy craisins in my salad. The dressing is a bit too “gloopy” for me (much like the Asian bagged salad, I really don’t enjoy a gloopy dressing.) So, I make my own!

*And don’t you worry! I don’t dare waste the little bag with the pumpkin seeds and craisins. I save them to use when I make my Homemade Granola

 

3-INGREDIENT LEMON GARLIC DRESSING

 

You will need:

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (approx. 2-3 tbs lemon juice)
  • 1 garlic clove (I buy the frozen cubes from TJ’s; you could also use 1 tsp minced garlic)

To make:

  1. Fill a mason jar with the 1/3 c EVOO
  2. Drop the garlic cube into the EVOO
  3. Juice your lemon (I love to use this juicer and stick it right on the same wide mouth mason jar that I poured the EVOO into)
  4. Put a cap on the jar and shake the heck out of it!
  5. Grab a large bowl and pour the salad in, then pour the dressing over the top.
  6. *This is important! Mix the dressing into the salad WELL. Personally, I use my hands and really massage the dressing into the greens. Kale, broccoli, brussels…all very rough. They need a good dressing to soften them!
  7. From here, the world is your oyster. Top with anything you like. I enjoyed it today with goat cheese, pumpkin seeds, strawberries, and chicken. I also love adding a lot of fresh parm sprinkled in with my micrograter. 

 

The entire salad is enough for a dinner party of 6-10 to all get some greens.

This keeps in the fridge for a good 3 days.
