Green Salad with Green Goddess Dressing and Blackened Tofu

This was a really great dinner. The green goddess dressing is tangy and creamy and works perfectly with the mix of crisp and tender lettuces, sliced cucumbers, and shredded snap peas. I topped the salad with diced avocado, toasted almonds and blackened tofu. A nice piece of crusty bread topped with sauteed mushrooms made for the perfect compliment.

Green Goddess Dressing

1/2 an avocado
juice of 1 lemon
4 green onions
1/2 cup soft tofu or vegan mayo
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/2 cup fresh dill
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
splash water to thin if needed

Puree everything in the blender or food processor.  Let flavor meld for a bit before tossing in your salad. You could leave this dressing thick and serve it as a dip as well.

For the salad. Toss your lettuces, cucumbers, snap peas and other goodies with the dressing. Top with diced avocado and blackened tofu.
