This salad was inspired by one I had at Love and Salt in Manhattan Beach the other night. IT WAS SO GOOD, I honestly couldn't wait to get home a recreate it! I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I knew I had to try and recreate it. I’m pretty sure I nailed it (at least I got close). This could be a great starter salad or a meal completely on its own! You can add chicken to it if you plan to serve as a meal. Also, this is great dish to bring to a dinner party!
If you've eliminated dairy and gluten like myself, you can substitute the cheese for vegan cheese and the bread crumbs for ground up pork grinds. For vegan cheese, I love the Violife feta cheese. For pork grinds, I go for the Epic brand because they are baked and have no additives.
