Recipe! Mediterranean Salad with Cilantro Goddess Dressing

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

    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
