Sonoma Tofu Salad

Whole Foods Market

Serves 4
This delicious vegan salad makes a great light meal by itself or served over a bed of baby greens. Tofu blended with white beans form the base for a creamy dressing. Garnish it with chopped celery leaves if you like.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) container firm tofu, drained or Easy Baked Tofu

  • 1/2 cup cooked drained white beans

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider or water

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon honey or agave syrup

  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

  • 2 cups grapes, halved

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 1/2 cup pecans halves, toasted and coarsely chopped

Instructions

Method:

Place tofu on a plate, cover with another plate, and add a small weight such as a can of food. Let sit 20 minutes to remove excess liquid. Discard liquid.

Place tofu on a cutting board and cut into 3/4-inch dice. Place 1/3 cup of the tofu in a blender and add beans, apple cider, mustard, vinegar, honey and salt. Blend until very smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in poppy seeds. Add grapes, celery and remaining tofu, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with pecans.
