Half Baked Salad (Vegan, Paleo & Gluten Free)

This is a simple and easy salad recipe that comes together in literally five minutes. It only includes a few key ingredients, but make the most delicious and flavorful salad. This salad is perfect if you want something quick and delicious, but don’t want a boring blad salad bowl. This salad can also be served as a side dish, or add some protein if you want to make it more filling

Even though this salad only includes a few vegetables it’s still very taste and have lot of different flavors and different textures. I love mixing raw vegetables with braked/cooked or fried ones. It helps create dynamics, provides different textures and make them more interesting. This salad has a lot of crunch from the raw vegetables, but is also creamy, soft and warm from the fried vegetables, which makes such a wonderful combination. I also added some lemon juice on top and make a tahini/yoghurt dressing to serve along with it. Who said that you have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to eat delicious and healthy food?
