Looking for interesting salad recipes, with three high-maintenance caveats.

I read through a lot of the other "salad" posts, of which there are many, but had a hard time finding much that met my (very nitpicky) criteria.
1) Vegan recipes
2) Does not contain peppers of any sort (any color, any type, sweet peppers, hot peppers, none of them - I'm deathly allergic)
3) Have ingredients which also lend themselves to being tossed with pasta (my general mode is to make a salad and pasta for dinner and I prefer the ease of using basically the same stuff in each)
I'm also definitely interested in unusual ingredients or unusual flavour pairings.
An example would be the following:
Shaved fennel, shaved apples, baby arugula, and walnuts, tossed with a shallot vinaigrette - and everything except the apples can also be wilted in a saute pan and tossed with olive oil over pasta.
There are many vegetables I'm not a fan of, but I'm trying to branch out, so all ideas are welcome. The more interesting, the better.
