I’ve been seeing Green Goddess salads everywhere lately! Inspired by the viral Tik Tok by Baked By Melissa of course… and was officially inspired to try one myself. You know how much I love a good chopped salad and a green sauce! I chopped, blended, and tossed… of course, I made sure it was macro-friendly and that I could eat a TON of it. Ha. I added some leftover salmon I had in the fridge and threw mine on a crisped-up @bfreefoods gluten-free tortilla and cut it like a pizza. Loved it! Here’s how you can make a delicious choppy chopped green goddess salad salmon flatbread, too.

How to Make this Green Goddess Chopped Salad

For the salad you’ll need:

For the Green Goddess salad dressing you’ll need:

  • Non-dairy plain yogurt

  • Light colored vinegar, (white balsamic or red wine)
  • Red pepper flakes

This Choppy Chopped Green Goddess Salmon Salad is a quick and easy meal. All of the components can be made ahead of time and then assembled when you are ready to eat. This makes week-day meals easy and effortless.

The key to this salad is in the dressing! No surprise. Sauces are life– AM I RIGHT. To make the Green Goddess dressing you blend all of the ingredients (plain yogurt, garlic, jalapeño, shallot, herbs, vinegar, and red pepper flakes) together until smooth. My go-to dairy-free yogurt has been SoDelicious non-dairy coconut milk plain yogurt, but you can totally use non-fat Greek yogurt in place of my dairy-free option. Your macros will be slightly different depending on which type of yogurt you use, but they are both tasty options and it will still be super light and “macro-friendly.”

If you love fresh and filling salads you have to try this Choppy Chopped Salmon Salad Flatbread. www.lillieeatsandtells.com

If you don’t have all the fresh herbs on hand, or if you hate cilantro, etc, just use what you have in place of the weight of all of the herbs! I can’t resist adding whatever I have, but I also love it with only cilantro or only basil, etc. If you are not worried about fats, you can add a few tablespoons of olive oil! But we love it just like this.

How to Assemble this Chopped Green Goddess Salmon Salad

Once you’ve made the dressing, it’s time to assemble the Chopped Green Goddess Salad. Combine the chopped iceberg lettuce and chopped arugula. Then, throw in your chopped cucumber, green onion, diced avocado, and flakey salmon.

This macro-friendly chopped salad is not only delicious, but can be made dairy-free and gluten-free. www.lillieeatsandtells.com

Now that things are chopped and assembled in your bowl, it’s time to smother it in and herby, garlicky Green Goddess dressing and toss well.

Serving Suggestions

I like eating this Chopped Green Goddess Salmon Salad on top of a crispy flatbread or tortilla. Toast your tortilla in a pan by cooking on both sides with a little spritz of avocado or olive oil spray and some salt until crispy. Once the tortilla is ready, pile your salad on top of the tortilla, cut it into wedges and eat!

    I loved this! My first taste I wasn’t sure, then realized I had forgot the squeeze of lemon at the end. Game changer! I couldn’t believe how much it made, thinking there was no way I’d eat it all…I ate it all and couldn’t wait to make it again. I toasted a cut da carb flatbread until crispy and broke it into big chunks, then ate the salad like a dip. This might be in my top 10 favorite Lillie recipes, thank you for it!

    💚💚💚 loved this! We made it using your sweet chili salmon recipe and caulipower crust. The green goddess dressing is 🔥

  3. This Green Goddess dressing is absolute yum! My first time ever trying this type of dressing and I can hardly stop eating it. I added the jalapeno but next time might leave it out or use half as much. Love it, thank you!
