Ina Garden's Famous Big Green Salad Recipe

As I always say: nothing brings people together like a salad! So here is my famous Big Green Salad Recipe for all my human friends.

You're going to love this salad! Before we get started, whenever possible it is best to get these ingredients straight from the garden. Which we all know is my favorite place to be. However, if you don’t have a garden, Johnson’s Backyard Garden-Austin and our friends at the Texas Farmers’ Market always have what you need.

The more green, the better

It is always best to start any salad with a base dark leafy greens like kale and collard greens. Start by chopping them into big bite sized pieces.

Now for fresh herbs

For extra flavor and variety, add some herbs. Cilantro and parsley are my favorites.

Don't forget the extra veggies

Next start adding veggies! Cucumber, zucchini, and squash are some of my favorites. Don’t forget the carrots! Chop these up into thin pieces and sprinkle them on top.

Need a little sweetness?

Finally, add just a touch of sweetness with some fresh fruit. Slice some strawberries and sprinkle them along with blueberries on top of the salad.

Bon appétit!

Voila! You have a delicious salad fit for your furry and human friends alike! Invite all your  friends to the dinner table, and enjoy! Be sure to share any pictures of your salad with us on social media @TinyTailsToYou.
