Get Your Greens Salad Dressing

Embrace the perks of added greens by making your salad dressing at home. Freshness, customize as you wish, and control over quality ingredients far outweigh store-bought.

Use up extra greens, reduce waste, save money, and reap a full spectrum of nutrient benefits.

Makes about 1 cup

🌱 1 shallot, roughly chopped

🌱 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

🌱 ¼ cup coconut aminos or soy sauce alternative

🌱 ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

🌱  ¼ cup tahini

🌱 1 teaspoon maple syrup

🌱 1 tablespoon dried herbs (for example, garlic & herb or lemon/pepper)

🌱 ¼ to ½ cup water, divided and depending on your preferred thickness

A handful of fresh baby arugula, fresh sprouts, micro greens, cilantro, or a combination of all the
above…remember, you are getting your greens in.

Salt to taste and optional


Place shallot through dried herbs into a high-speed blender. Add in ¼ cup of water and fresh greens and blend. Depending on your desired thickness, enjoy as is, or add in more water and blend again for a thinner consistency.
