Day 8 : You do make friends with a salad- A salad to win anyone’s heart.(click HERE to see what others are sharing today)
"Light on a Tennessee River"




Here’s how boring I am: my favorite vegetable is lettuce. And yes, there is lettuce under this mountain of vegetables. Do you see that I used some raw veg and also some sautéed veg? Those are sautéed portabella mushrooms  there in the middle of the salad.

What make a big salad like this special is a homemade dressing. I used two of my favorites and mixed them together. (That’s a special secret – try mixing dressings, maybe a creamy one and a vinaigrette, for a new flavor.)


The Best Vegan Ranch Dressing:
1 C vegan mayo ( I love Earth Balance brand)
½ t garlic powder
½ t onion powder
½ t dried marjoram
2 T dried parsley
¼ t black pepper
1 t soy milk, or more if needed
Whisk together and chill well

Basic Vinaigrette
1 T red wine vinegar
1 t lemon juice
3 T olive oil
1 t Dijon mustard
1 t honey or agave
½ t dried tarragon
Whisk together and chill

  1. The ranch dressing sounds good and all, but I can't get past the fact that anyone likes lettuce that much!

  2. Mmm these sound really good! I haven't used marjoram yet, could you say what it tastes like.

  3. Marjoram is kind of lemony...it's light and unusual....a great secret ingredient.
