  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1 tbsp tarragon leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Chop the carrots, yellow pepper, radishes, cucumber, avocado, purple cabbage and cherry tomatoes. Add spinach or any green of your choice to a large bowl. Place toppings on salad then add dressing when you are ready to eat. I added fresh cilantro on the top of my salad, this is optional! 
  • To make the dressing: In a food processor or blender, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, water, avocado, parsley, green onions, tarragon, garlic, salt and a pinch of black pepper. Blend starting at a low speed and slowly increase to medium, until dressing is smooth, pause a few times to scrape down the sides as necessary. 
  • When you are ready to eat, drizzle the dressing over the salad. Toss until the salad is lightly coated in dressing. Serve immediately.
