Here is a composed salad I love to make with whatever greens I have handy. My healthier version of green goddess dressing comes together quickly in a blender and is so good you will want to use it over fresh or grilled veggies, chicken and seafood.

· 1 cup wheatberries

· ½ cup shelled chopped pistachios

· 1 bunch broccolini, halved lengthwise

· 1 cup snow peas

· 1 hothouse English cucumber, sliced lengthwise

· 1 large avocado

· microgreens or sunflower shoots

Healthier Green Goddess Dressing

· ½ cup plain Greek yogurt

· ¼ cup sour cream

· 1 garlic clove

· ½ cup chopped flatleaf parsley

· ½ chopped fresh chives

· 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon

· 2 tablespoons lemon juice

· salt & pepper to taste

1. Toast pistachios lightly in dry pan or oven.

2. Prepare wheatberries to package instructions. Set aside.

3. Bring a pot of water to a boil and lightly blanch broccolini and snow peas, about 30 seconds.

4. Rinse broccolini under cold water and pat dry.

5. Using a vegetable peeler, make ribbons out of the cucumber.

6. Make green goddess dressing by combining ingredients in a blender until smooth.

7. Arrange vegetables with sliced avocado and cucumber on serving platter, top with wheatberries and pistachios and microgreens and drizzle with dressing.
