A couple of my girlfriends and I meet up about once a month for a glorious evening of non-stop chatting, laughter and general hilarity. Our meetings move around to different restaurants on occasion but for the most part, we stick with the best pizza and wine in Indianapolis. Now, a salad has to be really good to be able to hold its own amongst all of that awesomeness. And just like everything else at that lovely place, it does.
The version we usually order includes meat but I decided to go with a meatless version here at home. I’m all for anything that makes me actually crave veggies, and this salad does exactly that. Shredded gouda might have a small-ish part in that, but it really is the combination of all of the components that just make it work so well. When we have all of the components on hand, I end up eating it for basically every meal other than breakfast (though I would not be opposed) until we run out of one of them. If you need a little jolt in your salad routine, this may be just the thing!
