I received this recipe at a cooking class I took a few years ago and it is delicious. I know I always say that, but it’s the truth. Even the non-vegan instructor said it was amazing. It includes lots of ingredients but I am pretty sure they each play a specific role so don’t go substituting things until you try it as written at least one time.
If you have pasta, some veggies and a nice vinaigrette you have a meal. You probably noticed some of these elements in yesterday's Salads without Lettuce article. It can be that simple. In my interview with Jesse Miner, he mentioned a basic balsamic vinaigrette that he always prepares for salads. When it comes to salad dressings and vinaigrettes it really is cheaper and healthier to make your own. All you need is a jar to shake everything up or a whisk and a bowl and you're in business.
