I like to eat salads for meals every now and again, typically if they have plenty of protein, fat and some carbs to make it more filling. This is a salad which has all of these things, but according to my other half it shouldn’t be called a salad, just ‘nachos’. Whatever it’s called, this is a satisfying meal that’s fast and easy to make, and perfect for hot weather.
Total time 10-15 minutes
Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free, Onion- and Garlic-Free Option, Under 45 Minutes
Serves as many as you want
Dressing of your choice (for 2 adults and 2 children I use 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon raw agave syrup, 1/2 tablespoon seeded or dijon mustard)
Leafy greens (eg. lettuce, rocket (arugula), miners lettuce, mizuna, mustard greens)
Heartier raw vegetables (eg. cabbage, kale, grated carrot, sugar snap peas, green beans)
Optional fresh herbs such as oregano and coriander leaves (cilantro)
Corn chips, or extra grated carrot
Cooked or sprouted beans
Optional extras such as avocado, vegan cheese, salsa, spring onion (green onion)
Mix the dressing in a large mixing bowl. Add the greens, veggies and herbs and toss to thoroughly coat. Put layers of the dressed salad, corn chips, beans and any extras on large plates and serve right away.
In the photo I’ve used lettuce, rocket (arugula), sugar snap peas, red cabbage, grated carrot, corn chips, cooked red kidney beans, and the basic cashew cheese from ‘Artisan Vegan Cheese’.
