Flavor-packed Vegan Italian Chopped Salad with a zesty homemade vinaigrette! Healthy mix of bold flavors & a garbanzo bean boost! (Oil-free)
Can serve 8 as a small side.
After dressing is mixed with entire salad, it’s best eaten within a day. (Otherwise it gets soggy.)
If you’re not sure if you’ll eat it all within a day, I suggest keeping salad and dressing separate and pour desired amount of dressing on a serving-by-serving basis.
To prepare ahead of time, simply store salad and dressing separately (each covered in the fridge) and combine before serving. If you have a little leftover dressing, it stores great covered in the fridge!
Since the dressing is oil-free, it runs a bit thinner. If you prefer a thicker dressing, feel free to add chia seeds or arrowroot powder to slightly thicken.
Once the dressing is added to the salad, the flavors should really pop. If it’s a little dull, simply add a touch of salt.
