The words "hardcore" and "salad" rarely go together, but they just might when Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph is involved.

The legendary singer can shred his vocal cords with the best of them, but he's also a vegan Ironman triathlete who knows his way around the kitchen. He even wrote a book called Meat Is for Pussies about all of the reasons why he'd rather get down with beets than burgers. So it's no surprise that he makes a mean salad. 

Who needs meat when you can blend amino acids and nutritional yeast right into the dressing of this no-bullshit salad, loaded with walnuts, raisins, cranberries, and whatever else you can find in your pantry or vegetable crisper?

RECIPE: Avocado and Mixed Greens Salad

Oh yeah, and there's avocado. So if you weren't convinced that a salad can be pretty fucking badass, maybe you are now.
