Romaine Salad + Fresh Green Dressing. Romaine Salad + Fresh Green Dressing. Romaine lettuce that I picked up at the organic Farmer's Market, the market held every Saturday in Santa Monica. I spotted it perched on a table, piled on top of ten or fifteen other glossy green lovelies just like it. Gorgeous, fluffy, sprawling leaves of spring green so crisp and fresh that you could easily munch them down leaf by leaf. So for this recipe I didn't want to do to much to these leaves. I couldn't even bare to chop them up! Green Princess (Or Prince) Plate. I topped each spear with fresh chive hummus. Then a bit of chopped Medjool date to sweeten each bite. And I needed a homemade green dressing. And everyone does "green goddess" so I decided to do Green Princess Dressing since this plate is just so pretty. Lemon, pumpkin seeds, white miso paste and some raw hemp seeds. Light and refreshing with spring lemon zing. It all starts with a fluffy head of organic lettuce.. You can use any sweet accent. Try organic raisins, chopped apricots or your favorite fresh fruit like blueberries, banana, apples or pears. Compared to the dreaded "iceberg" lettuce.. * Romaine lettuce is rich in vitamins A, C, K and folate. It is a good source of iron, potassium and manganese. * Iceberg lettuce has a nice dose of Vitamin K and Manganese … but that’s about it. 147% Vitamin A, 128% Vitamin K, 34% Folate, 40% Vitamin C, 5% Iron, 3% Calcium, 7% Potassium, 8% Manganese. 10% Vitamin A, 30% Vitamin K, 7% Folate, 5% Vitamin C, 2% Iron, 2% Calcium, 4% Potassium, 6% Manganese. Add all dressing ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend on low until thin and textured. Slightly creamy, but more of a dressing texture than a 'pesto'. If making your own hummus, it is best to have it premade and chilled in the fridge for a few hours so it dollops well on the spears.
