Today I made this healthy and delicious Vegan BLT Salad for lunch. The vegan bacon was crunchy and delicious, and it made for a classic salad when combined with romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, red onion, and an awesome vegan feta cheese. This salad tastes great all by itself, and you can add the dressing of your choice.
I love to buy my fresh veggies from Whole Foods Market, Wegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market. Their selection is outstanding. If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
