When I create a salad bar, my family gathers around and eats way more salad. Then, I watch them go back for seconds. In fact, sometimes the salad is the only part of dinner without leftovers the next day.
And, I don't know about you, but that's a win at my house. So, bring on the vegan Caesar salad for your hungry crew.
