Category - Salads

Ah, salad. That’s all vegetarians eat, right? Of course not! But most of us do eat a fair amount of salad, and personally, I get tired of eating the same old lettuce every day. Here are recipes for some of my favorite salads.


AntipastoAntipasto, which means “before food” in Italian, is a salad-like appetizer consisting of various fresh and pickled vegetables, cheeses, and rolled or sliced meats. For vegetarian antipasto, you can either substitute mock meat products or leave them out altogether.

Arugula Salad

Arugula isn’t to everyone’s taste, as it has a slightly spicy, peppery flavor. For those who can’t get enough of it, this salad with toasted pine nuts will hit the spot.

Asparagus Salad

Asparagus, olives, mint, bell pepper, and onion – a nice mix for a summer salad.

Autumn Salad

Or fall salad, if you prefer. A colorful and flavorful salad to enjoy when the weather changes and the leaves begin to fall.

Avocado Tomato Salad

Avocado tomato saladThis is one of the simplest salads ever, and it’s absolutely delicious.

Bean Salad with Walnuts and Feta

Bean saladWhen you cook your own beans, they are one of the healthiest things out there, and they are delicious with just a pinch of salt. They are also wonderful paired with feta and toasted walnuts, as in this simple bean salad.

Beet Salad

I hated beets when I was a kid, but then as an adult I discovered that they don’t come from cans. Fresh beets are packed with flavor, and this French beet salad couldn’t be easier to make.

Bell Pepper Salad

If you like bell peppers, this beautiful salad made of roasted green and red bell peppers from North Africa (Morocco and Tunisia) will be a real treat.

Caesar Salad

Yes, it is possible to make vegetarian Caesar salad, and with this recipe you’ll never even miss the anchovies.
