Here’s a versatile little salad to start your week off on the right foot. Curry Tofu Salad! It’s made with all kinds of deliciousness, while being vegan and gluten-free adaptable. Serve it in a wrap, or spooned over avocado or mounded over greens, or all three, for three different lunches!

Apples, cashews and celery give it good crunchy texture, cilantro and curry powder give it flavor, vegan mayo adds a delicious creaminess while golden raisins give it sweetness. The tofu is seared, holding its shape well, so it’s not mushy.  And it is this texture of the tofu, in my opinion, that really makes this recipe stand out.

All in all, a delicious combination of textures and flavors.

Wrap it up, in a whole wheat tortilla, or in an avocado… equally as good!

The avocado adds a little more richness as well.

Or if opting for fewer calories, serve it over a bowl of baby spinach or your favorite greens.

My new favorite… Sunflower sprouts, add nutty flavor and a boost of nutrients.
