Vegan Gypsy Salad
Can we just talk about this salad for a second? I mean really. You know I’m SWIPING RIGHT on this bad boy. A salad straight out of your most indulgent of fantasies: This one’s got it all ladies – it’s hearty, abundant, nourishing and oh so fresh. In fact, I became mildly obsessed with it the way some people get with new, strange flavours of Kombutcha. I also love that it’s not one of those salads you only crave in the summer. Nope, I’ve gone full tilt on this one on dark stormy Tuesdays in November and blossoming bright Saturday lunches in March. Featuring avocado, pink grapefruit and roasted chickpeas on a bed of vibrant greens, this tahini dressed salad is every Gypsy’s dream come true.
