The almond-miso dressing is so good I had to stop myself just dipping my finger in the bowl to eat it! Plus, all that almond butter adds some excellent protein which will keep you full for longer. The fresh veggies add crunch and freshness – seriously, this salad has it all!

As I said, you can really use any veggies you’ve got on hand – other kinds of lettuce, celery, raw beetroot – anything with some crunch would be delicious. It’s a great salad to take to work for lunch as well – bake the tofu on a Sunday night and you’re good to go for a few days of lunches!
