Salad Challenge: Green Goddessphere at Sea

This weeks’ salad challenge posts: Introduction, Sweet + Creamy Broccoli Salad

I find that I am a lot more excited to prepare a big salad everyday when I have a fun and exciting homemade dressing to depend on.

Some of my favorites are Smokey Bear Dressing, Sweet Almond Spread with a bit of water, and Maple Balsamic Dijon. But no dressing compares to the power of the Green Goddessphere.

I promise, it’ll make any salad sing.

No matter what other random dressings I create on a weekly basis, there is always a batch of green goddessphere in the fridge.

It combines perfectly with mashed hard boiled eggs, makes for a delicious veggie or chicken finger dip, and; of course, is a great addition to any greens salad, including this one!

Green Goddessphere at Sea

Gluten free, Dairy free, Sugar-free, Yeast free, Corn free, Grain free

This salad has all of the flavor of a California roll but with 0 grains and amped up veggies! Crumbling up nori sheets in your salad is a great way to increase your iron and iodine content easily which helps to maintain healthy blood and a happy thyroid.

Yield: 6 cups

Servings: 2


  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 100g/24 count cooked and tail removed shrimp
  • 6 Brussels sprouts, steamed (optional)
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 nori sheet, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoon green goddessphere dressing


  1. If you’re not a Brussels sprout fan, feel free to opt out. I love the texture they bring to salads, but it’s a preference thing. If you’re using, trim off the end of the sprout and cut in half lengthwise. Steam for 2-3 minutes until crisp tender. Remove from steamer and set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a big bowl, topping with green goddessphere dressing and stirring to coat.
  3. Serve immediately

  1. Lol I’ll have double the Brussels sprouts in mine please! ;) Your dressing sounds delicious. I have a go-to herby green blend too, but I love the idea of putting sunflower seeds in it – i never would have thought of that!!

  2. i had a very similar salad last night! that dressing sounds great.
    love your salad challenge- i eat one every day, usually with dinner, and have been for so long. very versatile and delicious :)

  3. I have SUCH a hard time with salad dressings! I have not found one that I am completely head over heels with to date. I recently found a roasted garlic italian vinaigrette that I enjoy, but there’s still something missing! If I left out the freeze-dried chives in this salad recipe, would it affect the flavor much?

    Loving the salad challenge by the way :)

    • Is it because you don’t like chives? I’ve never tried without, but maybe you could add fresh green onions, or raw red or yellow onion to give it a bit of the zing. You don’t need too much. Glad you like the challenge!

      • Actually, call me crazy but I’ve never tried chives before! But I just haven’t seen the freeze-dried ones anywhere, that’s why I ask. Could I use fresh chives?

        • They’re usually with the spices, if that helps. If you can’t find them though, fresh chives would work just fine! I’d use about 2-3 tbsp. See how it goes and add more if needed.

  4. Leanne,

    Love your site and recipes! You are so talented. What is the name of the website/s where you order a lot of your products that you feature? Thank you!

    • Hi Addie, thanks! I purchase most of my groceries at Superstore. If I can’t find it there, I go to health food stores in my area – Nutters, Planet Organic, Bulk Barn, and Community Natural Foods. If I can’t find it there, I usually order my products from Upaya Naturals, Low Carb Canada, or National Nutrition. Hope that helps!

  5. I love making a healthy green goddess dressing :) And you are definitely right…I eat so many more salads and vegetables in general when there is homemade dressing in the fridge. This is definitely a secret to keeping the eat more veggies resolution!
