sesame ginger salad with crispy tofu and avocado

Updated: Jul 28, 2022

My mission in life is to make salads less boring! This salad uses a broccoli slaw base with a simple sesame ginger dressing, crispy tofu, sliced almonds, avocado and sesame seeds.

It’s full of protein and flavor, with the perfect crunch. I threw this together during lunch today in less than 30 minutes. You can add whatever protein you’d like, but I highly recommend you try this crispy tofu. Enjoy xo

3.5 oz extra firm tofu

1 tbsp tapioca starch

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sesame oil
