I am rarely a salad-as-a-meal guy. Salad with lunch or dinner, all the time. But even a hearty salad never seems enough without at least a light side, like soup or bread and hummus. That said, this salad is a meal, the proof being the leftovers we could not finish.
Of course, this recipe has a ton of variations. Always use ingredients with a variety of colors, textures and degrees of richness, and and cut every ingredient to roughly uniform size. The result will yield some very interesting forkfuls that just might fill you up.
