Meatless Monday Recipe – Teff Salad with Cilantro Dressing

17 Sep

Teff is a grain packed with tons of nutrition.  Probably not something you will be able to find in your local grocery store but definitely worth the drive to your nearest health food store.   And with kale, chia seeds and fresh zucchini, this salad is not even close to your boring lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

What You Need:
1 large zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups cooked teff
1 cup chopped kale
2 scallions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lime zest
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 large head Bibb lettuce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro

How to Make It:
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, teff, kale and scallions. In a separate small bowl, whisk lime juice, vinegar, lime zest, olive oil, chia seeds, sea salt, pepper and cilantro. Pour cilantro chia seed dressing over zucchini mixture; gently toss to combine. Carefully break apart pieces of Bibb lettuce and place into serving dishes. Portion teff mixture on top. Enjoy.
