I love lettuce-less salads! That definitely looks like a good one that we'll need to try soon.

Wow -- all of the food on your page looks fantastic! I just bought my own copy of Veganomicon, so I may just have to try that soup! :)

Yay for veganmofo! Great minds must think alike because I made a 3 bean salad last night- mine was nowhere nearly as colorful as yours, though!

That looks incredibly healthy. That's the kinda meal I'd eat after feeling guilty about scarfing down a whole bag of potato chips!
