Total time




  • 1 large bunch of Romain lettuce

  • 2-3 cups of finely chopped mixed greens

  • *1/2 cup whole wheat couscous

  • 1 cup hot boiling water (to cook couscous)

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries

  • 2-3 small mini cucumbers

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves

  • Salt & pepper per taste

  • For Vegan Feta
  • *1/2 a block of Extra firm tofu (Use herbed if you can)

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice

  • 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (+/- adjust per your tolerance)

  • 1 tsp miso paste

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • Salt per taste

  • For Salad Dressing:
  • 2.5-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 tsp maple syrup

  • Salt per taste


  • Prep your vegan Feta by cutting pressed extra firm tofu in big cubes. In a bowl add all your ingredients to make Feta, add your tofu cubes, gently mix. Close the lid and store in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours prior to adding to your salad. You can also make this from the night before and store in a Mason Jar. Longer tofu sits in this marinate, the flavor will be more intense.
  • Cook your couscous per package directions. For this recipe, I used 1/2 cup of couscous and 1 cup of hot water. Add them to a sauce pan with some salt, mix and close the lid. After 10 minutes, fluff your couscous with a fork and let it cool.
  • Finely chop romaine lettuce and mixed greens. Cut strawberries in quarters, finely dice red onions and cucumbers. Assemble your salad.
  • Cut Tofu Feta in smaller cubes prior to adding to the salad. I only used 1/2 cup of Tofu Feta for this recipe. Add in 1 cup cooked couscous, mint leaves, drizzle dressing and some cracked black pepper. Mix & Enjoy!
