There are many reasons to eat more plants: health benefits, heavenly flavors, and carbon foot print. That being said, changing your way of eating entirely is not easy and going full vegan is not for everyone! What makes this salad stand out is that it has lots of plant-based protein to keep you going and the vegan, creamy CBD infused dressing makes it way more fascinating than your normal lunch.

Prep for Grilled Tofu
Now, you can buy pre-made grilled tofu. Usually in the deli or Vegan section of the store. But for homemade, quick grilled tofu, please follow this recipe:
Heat indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high heat with some extra-virgin olive oil. Cut each package of fresh firm tofu in four fillet pieces. Sprinkle some Kosher salt and place on oiled heated grill. Sheer on each side for 8-10 minutes. Place on paper towel under a plate to absorb the grease. Let cool, then cut in cubes and set aside.
Prep for Bulgar
2 1/2 cups bulgar
1 1/2 cups water
Extra virgin olive oil
Combine bulgur, 1 1/2 cups water, salt, and a drizzle of oil in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook over low heat until tender, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
