Raspberry Walnut Salad
1/2 head of Romaine: washed, chopped, chilled
2 ripe avocado, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup walnuts, whole or chopped
1 cup (veggie) favorite vegan cheese, I used Pesto Jack
Optional: 1/4 cup red onion, diced
Raspberry walnut vinaigrette, store or homemade
Optional: Fresh raspberries if available
Very quick, easy, and high protein salad! Not to mention extremely tasty.
Wash and chop all ingredients. In four bowls, layer lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, and onion. Top with raspberries, walnuts, and vegan cheese. Drizzle vinaigrette over the top and chow!
I used a store bought dressing but a blending of olive oil, red vegan wine (or raspberry, if available) vinegar, salt, and ground walnuts makes a quick dressing. Serve up with soup and bread and this makes a wonderful lunch!
