This salad is completely plant-based and plant-powered and delish. Let me tell you a bit about it… I like to start with minced white onion and a little bit of white wine vinegar. Then I add celery, black olives, capers, and tons of parsley… yum right??? And then I finish it with olive oil and salt and pepper. Really, it is easy, delicious and perfect for every occasion.
