Vegan Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad

Vegan Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad

Vegan Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad is a plant-based version of the classic dish. The cubes of feta are actually tofu, making this a high-protein salad. It's the perfect summer recipe when tomatoes, cucumbers, and basil are in season. 

Be sure to make the tofu feta at least a day or two in advance.

Ingredients

For the Tofu Feta:

  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu drained and pressed, cubed (or use super-firm tofu and skip the pressing)
  • 1/4 cup coconut vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the salad:

  • 1 dry pint cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 English cucumber (or 2-3 Persian cucumbers) sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  1. To prepare the Tofu Feta, place the tofu cubes in a resealable glass container or zipper bag. Add the coconut vinegar, oregano, and salt. Seal the container, then gently shake to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight for maximum flavor.

  2. When you're ready to make the salad, add the Tofu Feta, tomatoes, and cucumbers to a salad bowl.

  3. Drizzle with the olive oil and red wine vinegar.

  4. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

  5. Toss to combine.

  6. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.

Recipe Notes

Prepare the tofu feta a day or two in advance for maximum flavor.

For removing the excess water from the package of tofu, I recommend using the EZ Tofu Press.
