Hoff's Simple Side Salad

Hoff's Simple Side Salad
Serves: 1
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, gluten-free


  1. In a 4 cup Pyrex bowl add Salad Dressing
  2. Top with Chickpeas
  3. Place the Lettuce on top
  4. Seal with the lid
  5. Shake until everything is well coated

Hoff's Thoughts: I have this salad everyday - once for lunch and again for dinner.  I prefer to shake my salad - it may not be pretty, but I really like how everything gets equally coated in dressing. 

The reason I make this salad in the order that I do is because I make my lunch salad the night before so as I'm running out the door for work, it's ready to go.  The Chickpeas in the middle act as a moisture barrier between the Dressing & Lettuce. 

As I make this salad daily, I prep the ingredients in bulk.  I chop six Romaine Hearts at a time, drying in salad spinner and storing in a ziplock bag with a paper towel to collect any residual moisture.  I rinse and drain two 15 oz. cans of Chickpeas and store in a Pyrex dish.  I also make the Hoff's 1 to 5 Dressing in bulk - increasing the Vinegar, Braggs & Mustard to 1/2 cup each and the Maple Syrup & Tahini to 1/4 cup each.
