Summa-Time Salad Series: Vegan Avocado Caprese Salad

A few years ago, the MLF and I went to Italy. Italy is amazing for 1289573925792 reasons, but one of our favorite things we enjoyed most while there was the caprese salads. So simple, so fresh, so delicious. We literally couldn’t go a meal without getting one and the handful of times we did we…

Next Level Grilled Artichokes + World’s Most Addictive Aoili (Only Eight Ingredients, Vegan & Glutenfree)
