Author Notes

Beluga lentils pack this vegan, and lettuce-free salad with plenty of protein to keep you energized and satiated all day long. Treeline vegan cheese resembles a similar tang and texture to goat cheese, which pairs beautifully with oranges, beets, and blueberries. Cucumbers give you just the kind of crunch your craving, while a heavy handful of fresh herbs and an oil-free orange vinaigrette bring a brightness to your salad and your day! —Lindsey
