Recipe! Mediterranean Salad with Cilantro Goddess Dressing

May 1, 2013

Mediterranean Salad and Cilantro Goddess DressingSalads can get boring quickly especially if you stick to the romaine and lettuce model, so it’s imperative for a serious veggie lover to try new combinations and pack them full of a variety of textures and flavors that will leave you feeling satiated. I love a good Mediterranean Salad so I made one the other day and experimented with my own raw version of goddess dressing. Goddess dressing is my all time favorite but if I choose to consume a brand from the grocery store I immediately start sneezing because of the preservatives! To avoid the unnecessary toxins and keep it raw, below’s a version of the easy recipe you can whip up that worked really well. I used cilantro, which is a great detoxifier and added a lovely freshness to the salad, but you can also use parsley in it’s place and it will taste equally as good. -XoXo Raw Girl

  1. This looks scrumptious! I am about to do a detox and this will be a perfect recipe to try before I go hard core with my juice cleanse.

  2. I am a Nigerian. I like your blog but some of these fruits are not here. Is there any substitute for them? Like Raw Tahini, tahini,
    Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar,Agave Nectar, Cilantro. Thanks. Agatha.

    • Hi Agatha 🙂 I don’t know where you would get those things in Nigeria. When I go there I could figure out what you could use to substitute and make something similar. I am sure back home, there are herbs similar to cilantro that would work well in a salad dressing. If you have avocado, olive oil, lemon, salt, and add an herb of your choice that will also make a great salad dressing. -XoXo
