This super easy vegan salad is filled not only with delicious vegetables, but packed with protein. The tofu comes packed in water so the first thing you want to do is drain the water. That helps it absorb the delicious flavors of the marinade, as the tofu can taste plain on its own. The tofu marinates in a zesty mixture of lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, salt and parsley, where it soaks up additional flavor. Mix the tofu with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and parsley.
