Ingredients:

  • Meuslix greens or assorted prepackaged organic lettuce
  • fresh organic tomatoes
  • canned kidney beans
  • diced firm tofu (optional)
  • seasonings / herbs
  • fat-free organic dressing or balsamic vinaigrette
  • cucumbers
  • fresh artichokes (in vinegar)
  • red onions

Directions:

First, open prepackaged lettuce mix of your choice. Add all of your cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions. Also you can mix the seasoning in as you prepare the appetizer instead of waiting until it is done.

You can add sauted tofu as an extra if you’d like; dice tofu into small pieces, add a little extra virgin olive oil and herbs to add flavor. whala!!!

Drain canned kidney beans to remove all of the salt and vegan sugars. You can add beans with sauted tofu too – I prefer to just add the beans to my salad.

Next, take your artichokes- make sure they are peeled, tender and have been soaking in vinegar. I usually buy the ones that are already prepared in the jar. I add these to my salad mix.

Afterwards, all ingredients should be mixed well.

I serve with toasted 100% whole wheat vegan pita bread w/ soy margarine and sauted tofu on the side. This is one of my favorite treats, hope you enjoy it too.
