The most important thing to remember when making a salad is to have a respectable 'lettuce' to 'goodie' ratio. That means not overloading with lettuce and having to dig for the toppings at the bottom of the bowl. I avoid this completely by making salads without lettuce. In about 20 minutes, you can roast a can of chickpeas to toasty perfection, and everything else just needs a little chop-chop. I make this salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so it's about time I share it with the world.
