Healthy Vegan Greek Salad loaded with bold flavors and an easy homemade tangy vinaigrette dressing. (Plus a garbanzo bean protein boost!)
I’ve always adored the boldness of Greek flavors. This restaurant-style salad is no exception. It’s loaded with all the goodies and then topped with a zesty, tangy, oil-free Greek vinaigrette (that only takes a couple minutes to whip up). Plus the deconstructed style makes for a gorgeous presentation… it’s like creating your own beautiful salad art! Fun, festive, and a great choice for dinner parties & entertaining too.
Plus you could easily go the “chopped salad” route and dice everything up a bit more – I’ve done this as well and really enjoy the leftovers after it’s had a chance to “marinate” in the dressing for a while. So many delicious, flavorful components… plus a garbanzo bean boost! Hope you enjoy as much as we do.
