6 Vegan Salads for a Badass Labor Day Weekend

08.29.14

Yes, salads can be badass. At least, these salads by fabulous vegan blogger chefs are.

Cookout sides are just as important as the main dish, especially if you’re a vegan and there isn’t a main dish. All of these recipes use “normal” (read: non-scary) ingredients, and are gluten-free. Ok, one of them uses hemp seeds, but do it. Your tummy will thank you.

So whether you’re a vegan yourself, or an omnivore unsure of how to feed your vegan guests, try serving up one of these 6 vegan salads and you too can have a badass Labor Day weekend. Because food is the way to everyone’s heart.

This was the worst intro ever, so I’m moving on to the salads:

I know I usually have a little something to say for projects/recipes that I share, but these photos speak for themselves, don’t you think? Also, it’s dinnertime as I’m writing this and I’m getting hangry.

Yes, 3 of the 6 are potato salads. If that’s not enough potato salad recipes for you, try my avocado potato salad.

I think might be craving potatoes.

What are you doing for the long weekend? And where do we stand on the vote between “Make Summer Last Longer” vs. “It’s Time for Fall Already” that I just started right now?

P.S. Remember when last week I said I should be done with the living room unless I jinxed myself?

I jinxed myself.

P.P.S. This is not a salad, but I stumbled across this recipe and it made my mouth water with the force of Niagara so I had to share: Vegan. Cheeseburger. Macaroni. Three words guaranteed to get me cooking.
