Goat Cheese and Grape Sorghum Salad with Green Goddess Yogurt Dressing

I recreated this Goat Cheese and Grape Salad with Green Goddess Yogurt Dressing that I had at a local cafe during a friendly lunch. I added the Sorghum and used greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise in green goddess dressing.

Stonyfield and Bob’s Red Mill are two of my favorite brands out there. They are committed to providing consumers with quality products and that is something I can totally get behind. Getting the chance to create a perfect for summer salad with whole grains and healthy fat from the yogurt in the dressing managed to make its way to the top of my to-do list. I immediately thought of this salad that I had at a local cafe in the Hudson Valley. The creamy goat cheese and green goddess dressing paired with the sweet grapes made such a great salad. I added the sorghum and replaced the mayonnaise in the green goddess dressing with Stonyfield Greek Yogurt.

The dressing might not be exactly the same as the green goddess dressing you will find in the stores carefully packaged in a nice little bottle but you can really get some peace of mind when you make little things like condiments in your kitchen. Using greek yogurt as a replacement for mayonnaise was a way to replace calories and fat!

Goat Cheese and Grape Sorghum Salad

The proportions of this recipe makes 1 large salad or two small salads. You will have a lot of left over dressing and sorghum so you can feel free to double the recipe for leftovers of for guests.

Yield: 1 large salad

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Total Time: 40 min

Ingredients:

for the dressing:
1 cup greek yogurt (I used stonyfield)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp anchovy paste
2 garlic cloves
2 Tbsp dried tarragon
1/3 cup fresh chives
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
for the salad:
1/2 cup sorghum, cooked (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2 cups romaine lettuce or spring mix lettuce
1 cup seedless red grapes
1/4 cup goat cheese
1/4 cup hazelnuts

Directions:

for the dressing:

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender. Turn on until smooth and all herbs are finely cut and incorporated. Use immediately or place in a glass jar with a lid and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Eventually the dressing will begin to separate so use it sooner rather than later!

for the salad:

Cook the sorghum according to the packages instructions and set aside.

Wash and dry the lettuce using a salad spinner or a dry and clean dish cloth. Chop the lettuce and place in a large bowl or divide among two smaller bowls.

Add the red grapes, goat cheese and hazelnuts to the top of the salad. Top with 1/2 cup of the sorghum. Drizzle the green goddess dressing on top and serve.

    Oooh, I would never think to add grapes to salad…great idea! I always add apples or berries but this sounds so good, especially that dressing!

    Bob’s Red Mill is awesome, the only one of these grains I’ve tried is Bulgur and I loved it! I would have to experiment but would probably start with some strawberries from my garden, the yogurt and one of the grains. Sweet giveaway, could really open up my menu plans with these grains!
