The Uprooted Kitchen
Earlier this week we mentioned that The Uprooted Kitchen, a vegetarian food truck getting ready to start serving around town, plans to reveal its menu of salad bowls sometime in the near future. These bowls won't be your standard lettuce with dressing B.S. They're loading them up with hearty greens, alternative protein sources, nuts, and grains...all topped off with Erin's homemade dressings and served with a delicious and healthy desert.

We couldn't wait to see just what goes into one of these things. So we did the only logical thing and asked for the recipe.
