Vegan MOFO: Soupy Sales Saturday–Super Simple Swanky Salad

This is another of my mom's creations from her restaurant back in the late 70's. She called it the "Marseille." (All the dishes were named after cities in Europe.) I've photographed two versions since Vegan Blue Cheese is not always available, but try and find it if you can.

I'm calling this super simple, well, because it is so easy to prepare. You can very easily impress your vegan lovely with this salad. Basically, you are plopping prepared marinated mushrooms and artichoke hearts/pieces on top of a bed of lettuce. Sprinkle on the blue cheese. Done!

Super Simple Swanky Salad (aka The Marseille)
Serves 2-3

1 jar marinated mushrooms
1 jar/can marinated artichoke hearts or pieces
2 Tbs vegan blue cheese crumbles
4 cups lettuce mix of choice

Drain both jars, saving liquid.
Cut up artichoke hearts or pieces into smaller sections if needed.
Divide lettuce on 2-3 plates, sprinkle on mushrooms and artichokes in a pleasing manner. (That's the swanky part.)
Pour some of the marinade on salads as dressing.
Sprinkle on vegan cheese.
