This meatless Monday needs some soup and salad love! Don't you think?
40 Vegetarian Soup and Salad Recipes

It is about last few weeks of winter left. Where I want to eat lite meals... rainy season compels me to make a soup. For this transitioning time of winter-spring, I have collected my most favorite 40 Vegetarian Soup and Salad pairings for whole month!

I thought, it will be great if you too have this recipe collection! So, here I'm, starting Monday with bouquet of vegetarian soups and salads!

Don't think twice, pick a salad and make a soup! Get the party started!

To get you started, I have paired a soup and a salad below. Feel free to use any combination! All soups are refrigerate friendly. You can even make a few ahead for week and then enjoy, a week full of healthy soups and salads! 

Tip: You can also use salads for lunch and soups for dinner. Or if making both for dinner, make extra salad to pack for lunch the next day.

I'm coming back with a spicy appetizer! Don't forget to check back!
