This salad is simple to make, and will impress your friends regardless of what they normally eat. It's great for a springtime gathering, and if made large enough (two servings) could be a meal in itself. It's easy to add additional items to this salad, such as falafels, serve it over a grain or even rice noodles and turn it into a bowl, or toss on some diced tempeh or tofu. But find a number of recommendations for herbs and greens in the recipe below.
Use whatever herbs you might be growing, or what's fresh at the farmers market. The dressing is bright and citrus forward, and goes with most of what you throw at it.
