In a large salad bowl, assemble a vibrant medley of fresh spinach, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced hard-boiled eggs, shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, avocado, cucumbers, and diced grilled chicken (or salmon if you prefer).
Let's whip up the star of the show - the Green Goddess Avocado Dressing. In a blender or food processor, combine the garlic, ripe avocado, lemon juice, chopped fresh herbs, Greek yogurt, extra-virgin olive oil, rice vinegar, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Blend until you have a creamy and dreamy dressing. Season it with kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Drizzle the Green Goddess Avocado Dressing generously over the salad, and give it all a gentle toss. Ensure that every vibrant ingredient is coated with this luscious dressing.
Serve your Green Goddess Avocado Delight immediately, perhaps with some whole grain crackers on the side for that extra crunch.
