Vegan Bruschetta Salad

I. Hate. Salad. Or at least, that’s what I used to tell myself. I was convinced that I never felt full after eating just a salad.

On a Sunday…

Well, maybe a big helping of potato or Caesar salad would keep me happy, but with those calories, I may as well have just had the burger. Then I had a life-altering realisation: there are salad combinations that can keep you full and satisfied, I just hadn’t found them.
