Greek Goddess Salad with Vegan Tzatziki

greek goddess salad

As promised after my Vegan Tzatziki recipe, I’ve now got a recipe you can use it in! This Greek-inspired salad is savoury, delicious and healthy, and very simple to prepare. Taking a simple base of green salad, we add some tomatoes and cucumbers which can soak in the tzatzkiki, plus some greek olives for a treat. Nothing complicated here, no extra preparation needed. The only thing left to cook are the butter beans. I decided to add in a quick version of the greek beans which I love, served on a piece of toast with a little olive oil – and that’s it! And there you have it, a quick and satisfying meal. For seasoning, I’ll leave it up to you, but in general I tend to go for something simple since I find that the pairing of veggies and tzatziki is already so flavourful and yummy.
