I was on AM Northwest making picnic salads, check it out!
And don’t forget that this salad is incredibly versatile. The basic is idea is something sweet, something hearty and a little sumpin sumpin to pull it all together, in this case cilantro. The dressing is super simple; a little vinegar and oil. All of these components can be filled in by you like one big culinary mad lib.
Just off the top of my head, a great autumn salad might be wheatberries, apples, pecans (toasted, if you want to get crazy), red onions and a little fresh rosemary. Or how about peaches and basil in the summer? Spring is coming and if you find yourself stumped at the farmer’s market, picture my floating head above your shoulder going “graaaaaain salaaaaaad.” It’s creepy, but effective.
The recipes are both in Veganomicon, but they’re also right here, enjoy!
