vegan greek salad

I know it’s weird, but one of the things I mostly miss since I became vegan, is our traditional Greek (horiatiki) salad. It is served pretty much everywhere. Of course I can always get it without the feta cheese but oh well… one of the things that Greeks are most famous for, is the feta cheese. So this salad is not the same without it. I’ve been trying to recreate the taste of the feta cheese in various ways. The most successful vegan feta I made so far is a version of an almond cheese which I will be posting soon. But while marinating some tofu for a totally different use I ended up with this delicious tofu feta like.

vegan Greek salad

Ingredients

for the tofu feta
1 cup tofu, cubed, pressed, drained
1 TS white miso paste
1 cup water
1/4 olive oil
1 TS oregano
1 TS lemon juice

for the salad
1 large tomato (not very ripe)
1 medium cucumber
1 medium red onion
1 green pepper (bell pepper will do)
1/3 cup olives
1 TS capers
3 TS olive oil
pinch of salt
1/2 ts oregano

To make the tofu feta, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let the tofu marinate in the fridge overnight. To assemble the salad, cut the tomato in moon halfs, slice the cucumber, the onion and the pepper. Place them in a salad bowl, add the tofu feta cubes, the olives and the capers, top with the olive oil and season with salt and oregano.
