I’ve been living in Toronto for 27 years and up to 3 years ago I was living in apartments so a bbq has never been available. Since going vegan I was like, will I ever own one? The answer to that is YES. Once the mister and I build our dream home out of the city we will own one. Who wants to turn the oven on in the summer? As I type this the weather is gorgeous, sunny and warm AND the mister just turned on the oven to 500 to make sourdough. Could we do that on a bbq? I Think the answer is yes. Plus the good old barby is perfect for when his carnivore son comes to visit as well as anyone else who wants to cook meat. I won’t let meat or fish be prepared in my home so the bbq is the natural solution. ANYHOOOOO, this post is about a salad so let’s get cracking.
Do salads need a recipe? Doesn’t one just throw random bits and bobs into a bowl and call it a day? Oftentimes the answer is yes, but SOMETIMES it’s nice to follow along and be told what to throw in a bowl. I made a pledge to you all that I would come up with creative ways to eat salad this summer and I want to keep my word. I have a checklist in mind when creating a salad. Especially when it’s the only thing we are eating. It needs to have protein, fat and fibre. It needs to be a complete meal so that we aren’t starving an hour later. Salads get a bad rap. Non-vegans think we are over here eating carrot sticks and iceberg lettuce but we all know that just isn’t true. This here salad proves that.
