This would have to be our all time favourite salad - really!! Tash and I are currently without our husbands as they are on an overseas work trip so we could think of no other way to cheer ourselves up then making this scrumptious salad and sitting outside in the sun. All that was missing was the sound of waves!
1 Cos lettuce sliced thickly
4 handfuls Rocket leaves
1 block of Tofu, cut into rectangular shaped pieces
- In a non-stick frypan, pour a little olive oil and let it heat up. Add the Tofu cubes, a little salt, Tamari and garlic/onion powder and let it fry until lightly browned on both sides. Remove and let cool
6 slices Sourdough Bread cut into rectangles for croutons
- Line 2 trays with baking paper and place the cubes of bread on to it. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and onion/garlic powder if you like. Put in a oven on 180 degrees celsius for about 5 or more minutes. You want to take them out when they are JUST starting to golden, NOT go brown. They will dry up and harden as they cool down.
1 recipe of 'All Purpose Tahini Sauce'
In a blender put:
1 small onion
2 cloves Garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 Tbs Tamari
1/3 cup Hulled Tahini
1 Tbs Honey
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup water
Blend all together until smooth.
All you need to do now is mix the lettuce and rocket together. Put some tofu and croutons on top and drizzle the dressing all over. Mmmmm.... enjoy!!
