- 1 medium head romaine lettuce, outer leaves discarded
- 1 bunch young dandelion greens, if available
- 1 medium tomatoes, cut into eighths
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 3 medium garlic cloves, pressed
- 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
- 4 ounces silken tofu
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons water, if needed to thin dressing
- Blend all dressing ingredients in blender adding oil a little at a time at the end.
- Make sure you blend this dressing well so the sunflower seeds are ground.
- Stop your blender and test for smoothness. When the seeds are ground well they will make your dressing nice and creamy.
- Chop, rinse, and dry romaine and dandelion greens.
- If you have a salad spinner it is best.
- If not, pat rinsed greens with paper towels so dressing doesn’t get diluted.
- Toss greens with tomato and desired amount of dressing.
This dressing is wonderful. It is very hard to believe that it only has 2 tablespoons of oil. It is very garlicky and creamy. I did not have the dandelion greens as suggested. I used a combination of red leaf lettuce and romaine.
Wow! This salad is all about the dressing, and it is a good one. I did not use the dandelion greens, I used a pre-packaged bag of spring mix that can be located in any grocery store. I highly recommend this salad.
Leslie this salad is so good! I used spinach instead of the dandelion greens and a bit more dijon mustard. Put the sunflower kernels in the food processor and gave them a few good pulses, than added the tofu and another few pulses. The dressing was very good, DH and DD did not know tofu was in the dressing mix. Wonderful salad!
