Rainbow salad with vegan green goddess dressing – bite into crunchiness and creaminess with this raw vegan salad.  It’s colorful, easy to make and ultra healthy.  Finally a vegan dairy free twist on an old classic- Green Goddess Dressing.

I’ve always loved green goddess dressing.  But I’ve never been able to find a good green goddess dressing recipe! Even the name appeals to me.  It sounds detoxifying and fresh!  I was always disappointed when I found out that the dressing recipe had mayo in it.  Finally I found away around that!

There are a few different ways to make a dairy free green goddess dressing recipe.  Instead of mayo you can use avocado or tahini.  For this recipe I chose to use a tahini base since it would last longer in the fridge.

It’s easy to make and blends up well in any high speed blender.  I prefer my vitamix!

Whats in Rainbow Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

This recipe uses a wide variety of commonly found produce.  You can get the ingredients in any store. The only less common ingredient is miso paste, which can be found in the Asian section of most health food markets.

If you have trouble digesting raw cabbage salt the cabbage and press under the weight of a heavy pot. The salt will loosen the cellulose and draw moisture out of the cabbage.
