goop Kitchen x Avaline: Make Cameron's Summer Crunch Salad

There's nothing more delicious than a crisp glass of white wine paired with a fresh, crunchy salad in the summertime. Our co-founder Cameron Diaz thinks so, too, which is why it made so much sense for her to collaborate with goop Kitchen, one of her favorite LA takeout spots, to offer the perfect summer pairing: Sauvignon Blanc + Cameron's Summer Crunch Salad.


Cameron teamed up with with Chef Kim Floresca of goop Kitchen to create a recipe full of texture and bright flavors that would taste delicious alongside our new French release. “When I’m dreaming about my ideal summer afternoon, say a Saturday in late July, it includes a fresh summer salad, a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a table full of friends."

The salad is available all summer at goop Kitchen, where you can place your order for delivery at, but if you don't live in their delivery zone (aka: Los Angeles and soon to be OC), we've included the recipe here so you can recreate it at home.



For the vinaigrette:

Place everything into a blender except the sunflower and toasted sesame oils. Blend on high until fully blended and smooth. With the blender still running, slowly stream in the oil to emulsify the dressing. Set aside until ready to use. You can make the dressing in advance and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

For the salad:

We like to layer this salad in a bowl. Start with your salad greens on the bottom, and then layer  in all of the vegetables, mango and avocado.

Garnish with the herbs on top.

When you’re ready to serve, toss the dressing with the salad and top with the cashews and puffed rice. Serve with a wedge of lime on the side.

Pro tips:

If you like a spicy kick, try adding your favorite chili condiment or mix it up with your favorite kind of nuts. We like cashews but feel free to experiment with almonds or any other kind.

If you don’t have puffed rice, you can use gluten-free wonton strips or fried garlic and shallots. Both will give it an extra crunch. (Whole Foods carries puffed rice that is great for breakfast in the morning and for salads. You can also make rice crispy treats for the kids, so it’s a win win for everyone!)

Try adding your favorite protein: grilled chicken or salmon pairs wonderfully with the spices and fresh acidity of this salad.
