Spinach & Romaine Salad w/ Creamy Garden Fresh Dressing

Spinach & Romaine Salad w/ Creamy Garden Fresh Dressing

This flavorful and fresh dressing elevates this green salad to something special. The Garden Fresh Gremolata olive oil is infused with parsley, garlic and mint, which complements the flavor of the lemon balsamic vinegar. The olive oil and balsamic vinegar are blended with Greek yogurt to create a creamy dressing with less fat than a traditional mayonnaise-based dressing. You could also use the dressing as a dip for raw vegetables or whole grain pita wedges.

Farro, Cherry Tomato and Arugula Salad

This hearty and healthy whole-grain salad can be a side dish or entrée. It starts with farro, an ancient relative of modern-day wheat that is full of dietary fiber and is dressed with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Arugula adds a peppery bite to the salad and important phytonutrients, as it is a cruciferous vegetable. Turn this recipe into an entrée by topping it with grilled chicken or seafood, or make it a meatless entrée by tossing it with cannellini beans or chick peas.
