Let’s talk about being a vegetarian.
Or, if you’re a total carnivore and hate all things green and speechless, then you can skip this post completely. But I was eating a salad the other day and I was just really excited to be a vegetarian. I’ve been a veghead for almost 4 years now. That’s almost 1/5 of my life! And I have never missed meat. Well, almost never. Can I just say those honey baked hams look really good every Christmas??
Anyway. Embrace your inner veggie. Eat some beans. Slice up a homegrown banana pepper and splash some lemon juice on your meal.
This salad is good for a crowd or if you’re feeling lazy and want leftovers so you don’t have to cook in this million degree heat.
