Instructions

Salad Ingredients:

  1. In a large bowl, combine together all salad ingredients.
  2. Use one of the two salad dressing recipes provided.

Salad Dressing option 1 (Ranch dressing):

  1. In a medium bowl, combine mayo and sour cream (or kefir or Greek yogurt) and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of dry Ranch mix. Mix well and taste to see if you need to add more dry Ranch mix to the dressing.

Salad Dressing option 2 (without Ranch):

  1. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, sour cream (or kefir or Greek yogurt), lemon juice, honey, and salt. Note that honey should be soft and runny, warm it up if needed, so that it mixes easily. Whisk the ingredients until well combined and smooth. Add salt if needed.
  2. Gradually add the salad dressing of your choice to the large bowl with the salad ingredients, and stir everything together.
