Try thinly slicing the onion, and quick-pickle it in pepperoncini brine for a few minutes before tossing in the salad.
Vegan Chopped Salad
This vegan salad does require some chopping, but since there’s no cooking involved, it comes together quickly. To turn this into more of a classic LA chop, you can doctor it up with grilled chicken or sliced salami and cheese.
1 cup very finely chopped romaine
1 tablespoon finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped marinated artichoke hearts
2 tablespoons chopped pepperoncini
2 tablespoons chopped pitted Castelvetrano olives
¼ cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
¼ cup chopped cherry tomatoes
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
1½ tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl.
2. Drizzle with vinegar and olive oil and season with salt and pepper just before serving.
