This Delightful Dinner Salad is a straightforward but flavorful salad. It’s an excellent choice to serve as a first course or side salad at a casual gathering or family meal.

Tender baby spring greens, sweet onion, juicy tomatoes and crisp carrots combined with an easy dressing make a tasty combination. If you do not have baby greens on hand, substitute romaine lettuce, leaf lettuce, kale or any salad greens your family prefers.

For added nutrition and protein, top this versatile salad with your favorite nuts, seeds and/or beans. This recipe is from my new book, Vegan for Everyone. YUM!
