The simplest of salads

Good morning! Last night I made an impromptu, quick dinner that was so easy I just had to share. Simple Salad | JL Fields | JL goes Vegan

Here’s the simple salad recipe:

  1. I started by chopping a small head of romaine lettuce.
  2. Then I drained and rinsed a can of chickpeas and tossed half with the lettuce in a bowl.
  3. I added chopped red onion.
  4. Then I sprinkled hemp seeds (Ziggy Marley Organic roasted salt and pepper brand from this month’s Vegan Cuts snack box), pumpkin seeds, and pine nuts over the top.
