Plant-Based Caprese Salad

Tofu Caprese Salad
Our little summer container garden doesn’t produce much, but it does produce some mean tomatoes and basil. And I’m grateful for that, because caprese salad is one of my absolute favorite summer dishes. Last summer, we tried making a fully plant-based version and replacing the cheese with tofu. It was delicious! I made it again the other day and wanted to re-share this yummy summer recipe.

I hope you love this plant-based Caprese salad as much as we do. It’s full of protein and perfectly refreshing in the summer months.
