salad

It’s Secret Recipe Club time again! This month I was assigned Brittany’s blog We Heart Vegan. She has a bachelor of science degree in food and nutrition which is totally awesome in my eyes. The goal of her blog is to show everyone that good vegan food can be healthy and fun and it has worked! Those of you that know me, know that I’m definitely in no way, shape or form a vegan BUT I am happy to report that this blog has some creative recipes on it.

This salad was superb! I chose it because as an Italian, the word antipasto just screams to me. You would definitely not think of antipasto as a healthy meal but this really is. It really fills you up as well. Maybe that is because there are more components to this salad than just lettuce itself. I will admit that I put feta cheese on here as well because it was too natural for me but I know that makes it not-vegan.

  1. I love me a good Greek salad and realized I hadn’t had one for awhile when I ordered one last week for lunch. Look forward to making this version – esp. come summer!

    Looks like we both had greek on the mind. The salad would have been perfect with the gyros I did. I’ll just have to make them again so I can have this salad with them.

I'm just an Italian girl with a love for food - no surprise there! I think cooking and baking for family and friends creates the best memories.
