Introducing a salad that features your favorite leafy greens as a bed, followed by tomatoes, cucumbers, chickpeas, kalamata olives, tangy hummus, and tofu feta. Top it off with a quick homemade Greek dressing and you got yourself one amazing salad.
For the Greek salad:
- Leafy greens
- Homemade tofu feta – Note: this takes time to marinate, so prep in advance!
- Red onion
- Grape tomatoes
- Kalamata olives
- Homemade hummus
- Pita bread – suggested for serving on the side

I love to use a 50/50 combo of fresh spinach and spring mix blend for my leafy greens. You can use 100% spinach, your fave salad blend, kale, or whatever lettuce floats your boat.
How to Make Homemade Greek Dressing
It seriously could not be any easier to whisk up a batch of tangy, flavorful Greek dressing from scratch. And it’s naturally vegan-friendly! Homemade dressing is quick to prep in 3 simple steps:
- Add all of the ingredients to a bowl or mason jar.
- Whisk together, or seal the jar and shake to combine.
- Use right away, or keep the vegan Greek dressing in a sealed container in the fridge. It will stay good for up to a week.
Tips for How to Assemble Vegan Greek Salads
- First, make sure you throughly rinse and dry your salad greens. Then use them as the salad base in the bottom of each bowl.
- Prep the other ingredients: thinly slice the red onion, halve the tomatoes, slice the cucumbers, pit and slice the olives, and rinse and drain the chickpeas.
- Now load each salad with all of these goodies, plus the marinated vegan tofu. Add a generous dollop of hummus to the side of the bowls.
- Pour on some of the Greek salad dressing, and serve with slices of pita.
And there you have it, the BEST entirely plant-based Greek salad eeever!
Can I make this salad recipe ahead of time?
Yes! Go ahead and prep all of the salad components and make the dressing. Then store the salad fixings together in one sealed container and the dressing separate in its own jar.
The salad part will keep fresh for about 3 days, and the dressing stays good for up to a week or so.
You can make a salad the morning of (aka before heading to work) too. Just leave the dressing separate when you pack up lunch to avoid a soggy salad situation.
