Yesterday was a huge disappointment. We were supposed to have sunshine, it was supposed to be 80 degrees out. I was going to have a little picnic, and I picked a couple apples off the tree in our front yard and made a colorful salad for the occasion.
For the dressing I combined a couple tablespoons of Wayfare vegan sour cream with a little olive oil, nutritional yeast, pepper, and onion powder. I made it the night before so I had the salad and dressing in separate containers, and I could not wait to sit outside in the sun and mix up my salad. But…
I also remembered why I cannot stand to go to restaurants where the only vegan thing available is a salad. A salad has to be HUGE to fill me up. About 10 minutes after eating this salad and an apple, I was hungry again. Next time I’ll make a great big salad, and put lots of stuff in it…nuts, maybe some tortilla chips. Or beans. Or just lots and lots of olive oil or tahini sauce.
I’ll try again this afternoon. It’s hard to trust the weatherman, but I’m always hopeful. And I do love a good, fattening salad.
