I love the Balanced olive oil here, but change it up by using a mix of oils–Basil, Meyer Lemon, and Roasted Garlic are all lovely!



For the Avocado Green Goddess Dressing:

  • 1 Avocado, halved and pit removed
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 23 Tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • Juice of 12 lemons (about 46 Tbsp)
  • 4 Tbsp Queen Creek Olive Mill Olive Oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • (optional: 1 clove garlic – if not using garlic oil)

For the salad:

  • 8oz of sliced grilled steak, grilled chicken, or shrimp
  • 68 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup halved baby tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • Croutons, pepitas, or pine nuts (optional)


For the salad dressing:

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Taste and add more salt, pepper, or lemon juice as desired. If you want your dressing thinner, add additional olive oil or a drizzle of water to thin it out.

For the salad:

  1. Layer greens, veggies, and your steak. Top with croutons, peptitas, or pine nuts, and drizzle with dressing.
  2. Additional dressing will keep tightly covered for 3-4 days.
