Can you make salad dressings without oil or mayonnaise — yes you can! Salads can be a fun way to mix up your daily vegetables and they can still taste great even without oil and mayo. Typically, I just use fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper to dress a salad. Sometimes I kick it up a few notches though! This particular salad is a Brussel Sprout Green Goddess with Ezekiel Bread croutons. Here’s how to make this delicious salad come to life!
To begin, slice your Ezekiel Bread into small cubes and toss lightly with olive oil and salt. Cook in a non-stick skillet over medium heat for a few minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove the croutons from the pan and allow to cool.
Remove the ends and slice your brussel sprouts in half. Place brussels on a tin-foil lined baking sheet that you sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle the brussels with salt and pepper. Place under the broiler on high for 10-15 minutes shaking the pan every few minutes to promote even cooking. While they are cooking, slice red onion, red pepper, tomatoes and carrots and place in a large salad bowl.
To prepare the dressing, mix 2 tablespoons plain, non-fat Greek yogurt, the juice of a half of a lemon, 2 tablespoons feta cheese, and 1 tsp Penzey’s Green Goddess Dressing base. Once combined, the dressing is ready to be tossed on all of the vegetables. Then top the Brussel Sprout Green Goddess salad with the Ezekiel Bread croutons.
