Summer Salad Redux: Vegan Recipe Contest


In honor of the upcoming Summer Issue of Definition Magazine we are holding a recipe contest! Salads do not have to be boring and we want YOU to prove that by sharing with us your favorite vegan salad recipes. So what defines a salad?

  1. a cold dish of various mixtures of raw or cooked vegetables, usually seasoned with oil, vinegar, or other dressing and sometimes accompanied by meat, fish, or other ingredients.


We will have you leave out the animal foods and submit your most beautiful and delicious vegan salad recipes to our contest. Anything goes as long as it meets the definition above. I know a salad can be warm sometimes but since summer is coming we want it to be COLD to cool us off! The team at Definition will be the judges, along with a secret special guest judge to be announced soon!

Three Awards Will Be Given:

1. Most Innovative Salad
2. Best Everyday Salad
3. Party Pleaser Salad

Fine Print:

Limit one recipe per person per category.
