Spring Salad

Spring Salad

Yield: 1
prep time: 15 M cook time: 10 M total time: 25 M


  • 2-3 handfuls of spring salad greens or romaine lettuce
  • 3 mini-cucumbers or 1 regular cucumber
  • Snow peas, around 1/2 the amount of cucumber
  • Green onions, around 5 or 6
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Honey, preferably wildflower honey
  • Black pepper
  • Extra firm tofu, optional
  • Vegan cheddar, optional


Spring Salad

  1. Add greens or lettuce into a large bowl with plenty of room for mixing.
  2. Rinse cucumbers, snow peas, and green onions with water. Pay special attention to the joints of the green onions when rinsing. Place on a clean towel and pat dry.
  3. If desired, start frying cubed tofu in a pan with olive or grapeseed oil. Stir regularly.
  4. Peel or half-peel cucumbers if you don't like cucumber skin.
  5. Chop small cucumbers into thin slices. For regular to large cucumbers, divide into thirds lengthwise before thinly slicing. Add to greens.
  6. Slice snow peas into halves or thirds. Add to mix.
  7. Remove roots of green onions, then thinly slice both greens and whites. Add to mix.
  8. Drizzle enough olive oil to weigh down the salad leaves. Test if you've drizzled enough by mixing salad with a large spoon or spatula.
  9. Add a drizzle of honey, around half or less than the olive oil.
  10. Add a few twists of black pepper, then mix the salad again.
  11. Top with optional fried tofu and/or crumbled vegan cheddar.
  12. Enjoy!
