When you want to be decadent and healthy at the same time!
I have been trying to cut down on grains lately and follow the specific carbohydrate diet a little more. This salad is really filling due to the almond butter dressing sweetened with dates and delicious tartness of the balsamic. I actually have a mediocre balsamic currently and it still tasted amazing, but if you have a higher quality one, all the better!
1/2 cup almond butter
1 garlic clove
3 Tbsp balsamic dressing
1 tsp grainy mustard
1/2 cup water
Juice of half a lime or lemon
Blend in blender , adding water until happy with consistency
Roast squash and cauliflower in the oven at 400 degrees C for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Wash and dry a bunch of lettuce, I found it easier to add the dressing to the veggies separately and mix, then add to the lettuce and mix, then combine together and voila!
Add half the dressing to taste, adding more if desired, might not use it all.
I was attempting to only use black and white vegetables but couldn’t help but add parsley in for health and extra flavour. I would love to hear if you have any ideas of other black and white vegetables / fruit to add to this salad, please mention in the comments.
