  • 1 cup cooked grain, like barley, brown rice or farro, or cooked root vegetable
  • 3 cups raw vegetables or 1 1/2 to 2 cups cooked vegetables (carrots, asparagus, green beans, radishes, broccoli)
  • 1/2 cup cooked lentils or black beans or 4 ounces cooked protein, like chicken or hard-boiled egg
  • A little good fat, like avocado, a splash of extra-virgin olive oil or homemade dressing, recipe follows
  • Savory topping like tamari or nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon seeds or nuts, like sunflower, almonds, walnuts, pepitas
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup whole-grain spicy mustard
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 scallions, green and white parts, minced


Step 1

Start with a hearty base of grains or cooked root vegetables or a mix of both.

Step 2

Add a generous serving of greens or other vegetables, cooked or raw, and a protein of some kind, anything from tempeh to a hard-cooked egg to chicken, lentils, black beans or a scoop of tasty hummus.

Step 3

Consider adding a little good fat: an avocado, a homemade dressing or just a splash of extra-virgin olive oil.

Step 4

Bump up the flavor and texture by experimenting with savory twists--a splash of tamari or a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, perhaps a smattering of pepitas or sunflower seeds or any other crunch. It's up to you.

Step 5

In a blender, combine the garlic, mustard, vinegar, oil, salt and scallions and blend until smooth. The dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 1/2 weeks.
