seasoned dry tofu salad

seasoned dry tofu is pretty yummy. it’s also a great substitute for your meat or protein because it’s chewy and dense. you probably can’t find them in a regular supermarket but they are pretty easy to find in an asian grocery store.

my gf introduced me to this salad dressing: Annie’s Organic Asian Sesame dressing and it is delish! together with dry tofu, veggies and a little flaxseed, it creates a yummy and healthy salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounce seasoned dry tofu
  • 1 small color bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups organic baby spinach – or –
    1-1/2 cups green leafy vegetablet
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 persian cucumber, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons dressing ~try Annie’s Organic Asian Sesame dressing
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil*
  • 1 tablespoon dry seaweed flakes, optional

Preparation

Add all salad ingredients, flaxseed and dressing. Toss and serve.

Top with dry sesame flakes for an additional kick.

SALAD DRESSING TIP:
Sometimes a dressing flavor is too strong – either too sweet or too salty. To dilute it, use a little less dressing and add extra virgin olive oil instead. i.e. instead of 2 tablespoons of dressing, add:

  • 1-1/2 tablespoons of dressing
  • 1/2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
