When I think of warm weather, I crave watermelon! I feel as though it’s one of those fruits that we simply only enjoy by itself, when it makes for a perfect addition to savory dishes, especially salads!
One of the first every EDS recipes that I created was actually this watermelon and tofu feta salad back in 2014. Since this recipe I’ve seen countless tofu feta concepts, but it truly is such a game changer! It’s simply a handful of tofu, some apple cider vinegar and fresh herbs. It takes on the texture of feta cheese, the tart flavor and is the perf substitute if you’re trying to remove dairy from the diet.
While salad concepts get less traction on social media (nobody gets excited about a salad lol), a good salad can change your entire life. Half the battle is getting those who are not into plant based living to embrace the lifestyle. By creating a staple salad that can be enjoyed for years to come, you can change the trajectory of someones commitment to going plant based.
This salad, is one for the books!
What’s fab about this salad, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, colorful, seasonal, has multiple textures, multiple flavors, the basil makes this salad superb, sweet from the fruit, savory from the nuts, tart from the tofu feta, has protein from the nuts and tofu, and the balsamic glaze just ties it in together. You can even throw in quinoa to at a protein boost!
If you love a vibrant spring/summer salad that offers intricate flavors and is just so effortless, you have to try my vegan Watermelon Tofu Feta Salad!
