Valencia Whole Foods
The Menu: A huge, splendid salad! Mixed greens, peas, carrots, and sunflower seeds plus scoops of hummus and a prepared bean salad of kidney beans, yellow and red tomatoes, cucumber, and red onions, all topped with a balsamic dressing and a chopped Gardein Beefless Burger (burger not pictured).
The Goods: One of the things that I love most about my standby salad bar is that it's always packed with bright, colorful veggies. It's like a game for me to try and get as many different colors in one salad as possible—without creating something disgusting, of course. Today might be one of my all-time bests! I'm pretty sure this enormosity will be enough to tide me over until tonight's Vegan Pizza Fest at Patxi's, about which I couldn't be more excited!
