Goddess dressing typically gets its umami-ness from anchovies, but we use miso in this super green salad recipe to keep it vegetarian. Substitute 2 chopped anchovies for the miso if you like. Or add baked tofu, poached salmon or grilled chicken for a boost of protein.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Toss broccoli and green beans with oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring water and lentils to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until tender, about 25 minutes. Rinse and drain well.

  • Combine herbs, mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, miso, garlic and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth.

  • Gently toss escarole (or lettuce) and kale with the roasted vegetables and lentils in a large bowl. Serve with the dressing.


To make ahead: Refrigerate cooked lentils (Step 3) and dressing (Step 4) separately for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before tossing with greens.

Tips: We like French green lentils instead of brown when we want lentils that hold their shape (instead of breaking down) when cooked. Look for them in natural-foods stores and some supermarkets.
