When I’m planning a lunch or dinner for my vegetarian mom, I try and make things that could easily work both as a side dish or a main dish. Also, it’s the summertime so I want something that’s refreshing on a hot day but simple to make, without the need of the oven. I know it seems like a tall order, but really it isn’t. Let me introduce you to my vegetarian chopped salad! It meets all my criteria and happens to be delicious and filling.
