WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Tofu isn’t only for vegetarians! Made from soybeans, it is a terrific protein source. Tofu is also loaded with isoflavones, which are antioxidants that work to protect your heart and are associated with lower risks of some cancers. This dish is a nice, light choice for dinner or lunch, but still packs enough protein to leave you full and satisfied. A little bit of light and refreshing vinaigrette or anti-inflammatory ginger dressing is the perfect way to deliciously tie this salad together. Pass me a fork, please.
