I love creating vegan dishes, I love vegan food, but mostly I love vegan people—especially my son! My Meatless Monday Salad is a winner whether you’re plant-based or not—and it’s so important to have a few amazing plant-based dishes in your repertoire. This one is truly spectacular and layered with so many amazing flavors.
I am indeed a carnivore, but I’m also a vegetable enthusiast! This fabulous salad starts with base of delicious leafy greens, green cabbage, then we toasted some walnuts, added white sesame seeds, pepperoncini, green , and cucumbers.
To make sure this Meatless Monday salad was really hearty, we used tempeh as the main source of protein. Tempeh offers a slightly different texture and flavor than tofu, and its nuttiness is a fabulous addition to the salad.
I absolutely love the crunchy-sweet combination we’ve created, and my Creamy Chive Citrus Dressing Magic Elixir takes it over the top.
Once you have everything ready, toss it all together so you get a little bit of each element in each bite. The result is a light but totally satiating salad that’s great for lunch either at home or on the go. I pack the separate elements in jars then toss them together and eat at mealtime.
