Our family is not vegan. But every now and then we like to minimize the amount of animal products and animal proteins that we eat. In practice that means fruit salads in the morning, in many cases. Some of the times I want some savory option. By savory I don’t mean a lot of salt. In fact eating too much salt problem with the modern diets. This recipe uses zero salt and the only ingredients that might contain a tiny amount of sodium is the balsamic vinegar.
