garden greens with chimichurri salad dressing


The warm days, cool nights and spring showers has our garden flourishing!


Last nights dinner consisted of fresh picked greens, locally grown asparagus, roasted peppers, avocado and hemp seeds!  To top it off I made a chimichurri salad dressing with fresh basil and cilantro.


Making salad dressing is SO simple and SO much healthier than store bought alternatives that may contain poor quality oil, preservatives, hidden sugars and food coloring.  You don’t have to get fancy, a simple splash of olive oil and balsamic will do!  But, if you want to experiment, give this salad dressing a try!

Chimichurri Salad Dressing

2/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar

½ cup fresh basil

¼ cup fresh cilantro

¼ cup water

1 garlic clove

1 tablespoon honey or agave

pinch red pepper flakes

Place all ingredients in a food processor, blend and enjoy!
