Scrambled Tofu Mixed Green Salad with Avocado Salad Dressing Recipe

I created this post as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SweetSwaps #SplendaSweeties

With the cold thawing off and Spring here it’s a great time to start breaking out those lighter and healthier meals.  For me that means lots of refreshing salads for lunch and dinner.  I always have a couple of different varieties of leafy greens in my fridge.  The other components of my salads often vary so much from one day to the next, be it meats, tofu, colorful veggies, fruits, or nuts and seeds.    We crave fresh and new things in life so I try to make salads an exciting experience for my taste buds.

Tofu is the centerpiece of this salad which always pairs nicely with spinach.  The star of the salad though is really the avocado salad dressing.  The taste is vibrant, it’s slightly creamy yet has so much flavor from the garlic, cilantro and lemon.    The pumpkin seeds and roasted butternut squash add color and texture to the dish and up the game in nutrients even more.  The end result is a dish that’s very unique and likely something that you and those you are serving the dish to have never had before.

Salad dressings have been given a bad name over the years.  Store-bought dressings are often loaded with fat and other ingredients that don’t do your health any favors.  They have come around over the last decade with a lot wider variety of healthy dressing options.  I still however opt to make my own dressing 99% of the time.  It’s quick, you have full control over what goes in, and it’s also fun to play mad scientist a bit and experiment with different tastes.

    This looks SO GOOD. I love this because it’s packed with all kinds of healthy ingredients. I love the tofu added for protein and the avocado for healthy fats. Yum.

    It has been ages since I’ve had a salad as tasty as this one looks and sounds. I will definitely have to try this sometime! – HilLesha

    This looks great and so healthy! I love “out of the box” recipes like this that are totally different than the same old thing I whip up for dinner. Thanks!

    Turmeric has a lot of healing benefits. I usually add them in soup or grate a small piece and add to rice while it is cooking. Turmeric tea helps a lot with aches and pains. I will try your recipe of scrambled tofu with turmeric. Sounds delicious enough to try!

    I have been wanting to make some new salad dressing to try. This sounds perfect.

    I have PCOS so there’s some controversy over whether tofu is okay to eat or not, so I would probably leave that out, but the rest looks great! I sort of do the same thing for my salad dressing! I smash up an avocado, and put in sea salt, chopped cilantro, and lime juice. It makes my salads SO flavorful, and all I have in the salad is lettuce and tomato!

    This looks very good. I love how healthy it is too. I’ve been trying to do more of a healthier lifestyle, especially with foods. I will have to give this a try.
