It’s All Greek To Me Salad

There’s something so greatly satisfying about Greek salad. Loaded with antioxidant-rich veggies, the simple dressing allows them to shine in their natural glory. And the Tofu Cheese makes for a nice sub for feta.

Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredient List: 

Dressing:
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced
Generous pinch dried basil
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons sweet white miso
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon brown rice syrup

Salad:
1 large head Romaine lettuce
10-12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 medium cucumber, cut into fine matchstick pieces
1 small red onion, cut into very thin half-moon slices
½ pound Tofu Cheese, coarsely crumbled
10-12 oil-cured black olives, pitted, halved

Step By Step Instructions: 

Prepare the dressing. Whisk together all ingredients, with salt and pepper to taste. Chill completely to develop flavors.

Hand shred the lettuce into bite-size pieces and combine with balance of ingredients. Just before serving, toss salad with dressing and serve immediately.
