Live to Eat: Simple Vegetarian Summer Salad
This salad is colorful, yummy, easy to make, and great for the hot days of summer.
- Baby spinach
- Chopped almonds (I buy the bag of whole almonds from Costco and chop a little bit to add to salads - it's much cheaper than buying almonds already shopped)
- Small can of Mandarin oranges in light syrup (I usually use half a small can for 1 serving and save any leftovers in the fridge)
- Fresh blueberries
- Baked tofu - teriyaki flavor (from Trader Joe's)
- Balsamic vinaigrette
Wash the spinach and blueberries. Cut up the tofu into small rectangles/squares. Heat a skillet with a little bit of Pam or oil. Cook tofu for a couple minutes on medium heat until edges are brown, turning often. The baked tofu from Trader Joe's is ready-to-eat so if you can always forgo cooking it. Add all ingredients together and enjoy!
