Traditional Salad

Do you enjoy those simple iceberg lettuce, romaine, shredded carrots, bacon bits, all swimming in ranch dressing salads you get at restaurants as a side to your meal?
My family orders "extra ranch" with their water lettuce and bacon bits... and boy did I miss ranch dressing when I swore off eating animals!

If you're craving this generally boring, simple, not incredibly nutritious traditional side salad, I've got the answer for you! No cooking necessary!

Bag of salad (any kind! The darker the leaves, the healthier)
Ranch Dressing (Organicville makes a delicious non-dairy, no-egg ranch)
Bacon Bits (there are several brands sold at common grocery stores that contain no meat!)
Baby Carrots
Tofurky sandwich slices (cut/slice cold or hot) OR Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Chik'n Strips
Pepper, of course

Combine ingredients and drench in ranch dressing. Mmm mmm, good!

  1. OOOh KP, thanks for posting this! I was going to ask you about a vegan ranch dressing. I'm thrilled to hear they make one that you recommend. I'll have to give it a try! P.S. - my favorite animal product-free "bacon" bits are the McCormick brand ones.

  2. Ah, awesome, a vegan ranch dressing. I tried making one once with cashews, and it was an exercise in misery.
