Often I let my CSA organic produce box dictate my salads. I am loaded with fresh leafy greens and have a beautiful bunch of Claytonia (Miner’s Lettuce), so I wanted to come up with a vibrant dressing to really punch up the mellow flavors of my lettuce greens.
Cilantro Garlic Dressing
I blended up 1 cup of fresh cilantro, 2 cloves garlic cloves (you may want to keep your distance for awhile), salt, 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of fine grated fresh parmesean cheese, 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons of sour cream.
I sliced up some fresh California straberries and placed on top and drizzled with my super powered dressing. Wow! The tangy cilantro garlic dressing really paired great with the sweet strawberries. Next time I would add some avocado, but I just didn’t have one ripe and ready today!
