Bold Summer Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing

This salad is full of flavor and quick to prep! The bold flavors come from the fresh spring onions and raw, chopped garlic scapes. While they don’t add a lot of heat, they do step this simple salad up in bold taste. The Creamy Lemon Pepper Dressing really rounds out the salad and adds a cool touch for those bold flavors.

Recipe Notes

To make this dairy-free/vegan: use an appropriate mayonnaise. Personally, I like Primal Kitchen (not vegan), Follow Your Heart or Chosen Foods.

To make your own gluten-free croutons: simply cube up a couple of slices of gluten-free bread, like Canyon Bakehouse Schar, or Udi's. Add a touch of butter or olive oil plus your favorite seasonings - like Italian, Garlic Salt, etc. Toast in the oven at 400F for about 10 minutes, tossing half way through.
