Hearty Seitan Salad

Hearty Seitan Salad

Here’s a delectable salad featuring strips of high-protein seitan, embellished with avocado and olives. This salad is also delicious served in wraps. It’s great accompanied with a simple potato dish or any kind of potato salad. Seitan is pure wheat gluten, so this is obviously not for those who are gluten-free!

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 1 pound prepared seitan or Homemade Seitan
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Torn or shredded lettuce, any variety, as desired
  • 1 medium green or red bell pepper, or half of each, cut into narrow strips
  • 2 medium firm, ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1/3 cup sliced black olives
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Natural bottled or homemade dressing of your choice (see Note)

Drain the seitan and cut into small bite-sized chunks. Heat the oil in a wide skillet. Sauté the seitan strips until golden, stirring frequently, then remove from the heat.

Combine the lettuce, bell peppers, tomatoes, avocado, and olives in a mixing bowl and toss together. Add the seitan strips and toss again.

NOTE: Try dressing this with a purchased or homemade French DressingAnother tasty option is Tangy Tahini Dressing.
