This vegan tossed salad recipe features colorful veggies, crunchy homemade croutons, and a variety of vegan salad dressing options!

Make it a main dish: Add chickpeas, white beans or black beans (drained, rinsed and salted), raw falafel, or other vegan protein.




  1. If using, make the Homemade Croutons.
  2. Wash and chop the romaine. If necessary, wash the mixed greens. (You can use any mix of greens here; measure about 2 cups of greens per serving.)
  3. Thinly slice the red onion. Thinly slice the green onion.
  4. Peel and chop the cucumber. Shred the carrot (we used this Handheld Julienne Shredder). Thinly slice and half the radishes.
  5. Choose and make the dressing (select from the dressing recipes above!).
  6. Toss together the greens, red onion, green onion, cucumber, carrot, radishes, and pepperoncini. Top with sunflower seeds and croutons, and drizzle with dressing.
