Falafel Salad with Hummus Dressing — Meatless Monday
If you've just about had it with your usual salad routine of lettuce and dressing, it's time to dress up your greens with one hearty, satisfying addition: falafel. Made with bold spices and mashed chickpeas, falafel are golf-ball-size rounds that boast all the heft of meat in your salad, without the actual meat.
In Food Network Magazine's recipe for Falafel Salad with Hummus Dressing, the falafel are coated with crispy panko breadcrumbs and fried, resulting in a crispy-crunchy exterior and a tender inside. When it comes to the salad, opt for a simple mixture of parsley and juicy tomatoes to transform a base of romaine, and round it out with a creamy hummus-yogurt dressing for simultaneous richness and tang.
