RECIPE: Tempeh Bacon Salad

A personal favorite, I have been known to eat one of these per week.


  • 1 pre-washed package of mixed baby greens
  • 1 package of tempeh bacon
  • Candied pecans/walnuts, or pine nuts (ideally from bulk foods, since they get kind pricey)
  • Dried cranberries
  • Balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing (experiment until you find your favorite – mine is the Whole Foods brand, 365)


  • Place the salad into two large bowls and top with the nuts and cranberries (use however much looks right to you, but don’t go crazy)
  • Slice the tempeh bacon into domino-sized strips
  • Saute the tempeh bacon until thoroughly heated (you can further flavor to taste, if so inclined)
  • Top the salads with tempeh bacon
  • Serve with dressing
