For those of you cutting out dairy this vegan Greek Salad with Tofu Feta will satisfy your Greek salad cravings!
I love Greek food, but for some reason don’t eat it that much. Maybe it’s because I can no longer eat pita bread, and it breaks my heart to see it being served when I can’t eat it. When I go to a Greek restaurant I usually get falafel and salad sans the feta and pita. One of these days I’ll attempt a gluten free pita recipe. Until then, I’ll make other Greek recipes like this Greek Salad with Tofu Feta. If you ever see tofu feta being served at a Greek restaurant, I would love to hear it! That goes for vegan tzatziki too. Well, I am sure glad that I enjoy creating recipes because I can make all my favorites but in a vegan gluten free version.
This salad is pretty traditional, except for the tofu feta of course. I have even included Greek peperoncinis, which I forgot to include in two of the photos. It’s funny about peperoncinis – sometimes they seem spicy to me, and other times not so much. Maybe it depends upon the batch just like with green chilis.
Greek Salad with Tofu Feta
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- 6 cups Romaine lettuce
- 1 cup grape or other tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
- 1/4 cup sliced red onion
- 1 cup sliced English cucumber
- 1 1/2 cups tofu feta
- Greek peperoncinis
- Mix dressing ingredients together.
- In a bowl, mix all salad ingredients. Top with dressing, and serve with peperoncinis.
*Note: Dressing will thicken in the fridge because of the oil. Leave out at room temperature to liquify. Because this dressing has garlic, you will want to use it up by the end of the week.
