Woodstock Garden Green Salad

IMG_5120

We went up to Woodstock this weekend for one of our regular visits. Two houses, four gorgeous food gardens. This entire salad came out of my friend Richard’s garden. That’s shiso on the left and some kind of onion flower which may or may not be called allumiin. Earthy, clean, energetic, and delicious.

Greens
Curly kale
Russian kale
Shiso
Chives
Cucumber

Chiffonade the greens and dice the cucumber.

Dressing (makes about 2 cups)
1 cup filtered water
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 avocado
The juice of 1/2 a lime
1 clove of garlic
Sea salt, a pinch

Place all ingredients into the Vitamix or blender. Let it tip until it is well blended.

Pour over the greens, toss well, and enjoy!
