For some people (like my husband) it ain’t easy eatin’ green. When he was a kid his mom made up a little song to encourage him to finish his salad. The main lyric of it was, “Jamie! Jamie! Jamie! Jamie eat your salad!â€ I guess you kind of have to hear it. Anyway, I don’t think it did much to help him want to eat it.
I’ve found that sometimes the right dressing makes it so much more tolerable to the salad avoider. How about putting something green on your greens? I think this recipe for Creamy Green Dressing from Emeril is one of the better ones for making folks wanna eat their veggies. And again, it’s a great dip for veggies, pita chips or bread, or even for a hearty potato chip. It’s versatile. Use it well!
Creamy Green Dressing
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 avocado, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 tablespoon minced tarragon or dill
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Toss all that in the blender and process until smooth! BAM! You got something to make your salad and veggies happy happy!
