Recipe: Tofu Spinach Salad

I definitely get sick of the typical green salad; tomato, cucumbers and carrots, I can only eat it so much.

I try to add in some sort of protein in my salads, to make them more filling.

I cubed 1 serving of tofu, and poured Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing over it.

For the salad; I chopped up a few handfuls of spinach and threw the tofu on top. I also top the salad with strawberries, dried cranberries and slivered almonds. I topped the whole salad with red wine vinegar.

I love using the tofu because it is low in calories, but very protein dense, this kept me full for a few hours.

If you eat meat, you could probably use chicken, or another lean protein, instead.

If you eat dairy, feta cheese would probably be a nice addition on top.

  1. I'm so afraid of tofu, even though it looks so good all over the blogosphere. Maybe some day I'll be brave enough to try it. Looks good!
