DIY Salad Bar
Who loves salad like I do?
As a side salad, pretty much anything will do.
For an entree salad, I have some requirements. I need protein with my crisp cool greens. A variety of textures and flavors, and plenty of fresh veggies. And sometimes fruit.
This is my guide for serving a DIY salad bar for a party, AND a plan for your weekly meal prep for quick and easy weekday meals.
Salad meal prep
I enjoy salads all year round, but especially in the warmer months, and most especially when our fabulous Portland farmers markets open up!
Give me a large bowl (I'm talking mixing bowl or serving bowl here) piled high with greens, veggies, avocado and a warm protein - and I am happy.
Come over to my house when I have enough greens for a Build Your Own Vegan Chef Salad Bar? I am happy joyful ecstatic.
Along the lines of all things entertaining, I sure do love to set up a Serve Yourself Food Bar - tacos, salads, pasta bowls, stuffed baked potato... you name it, I'll do it!
This Build Your Own Vegan Chef Salad Bar could not be easier - simply set out bowls of each ingredient, with a stack of plates, napkins and utensils at one end.
Also! For each bowl / container of ingredients, have a serving utensil. Then have another stack of extra utensils, because somehow more are always needed.
fresh salads and sunny days...
