This is just a random song of praise for my favorite kind of salad =)
While I do love leafy green salads with kale, baby spinach, or Romaine lettuce, the type that really wins me over are the really solid salads with big pieces of chopped up cucumber, tomato, carrot, celery, beets, etc., with a generous handful of olives. Typically, I also love to bulk them up by mixing in a bit of pasta, rice, potatoes, extra firm tofu, or cashews. For a little extra flavour, I just mix up some random dressing usually containing some combination of whipped mustard, lemon juice, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, tahini, or freshly ground sesame seeds, plus a sprinkling of fresh garden herbs (usually lemon thyme, basil, or garlic chives).
…Different each time, and always super satisfying and filling!
