Superfood Salad with Healthy “Ranch” Dressing
This salad can be super kid-friendly. I recommend cutting the produce quite small so it isn't overwhelming, and using enough ranch to entice them.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cup Broccoli florets chopped
- 1 cup Blueberries
- 1 large Fuji Apple diced
- 1 cup chopped Red Cabbage
- 2-3 cups Baby Spinach/Baby Kale Blend I used Taylor Farms
- 1/8 cup dried cherries unsweetened
- 4 tbsp Pine Nuts
- 3/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt I used Stonyfield
- 1 cup Buttermilk
- 2 scallions minced
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
- 1/8 tsp paprika
Toss all of the salad ingredients (broccoli through pine nuts) in a bowl.
For the dressing: In a small jar with a tight fitting lid, combine buttermilk and greek yogurt. Using a small whisk, beat until fully incorporated. Add rest of the ingredients (scallions through paprika). Place lid on jar and shake until all seasonings are mixed in.
Toss 1/2 the dressing with the salad, and right before serving, drizzle some (or the rest) of the dressing on top. Taste and add more salt & pepper if needed.
