    Radish & tofu salad with sesame dressing

    Preparation time: 15 minutes
    Cooking time: 5 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    140g pack Waitrose & Partners Butterhead and Spinach Salad
    150g pack mixed radishes, sliced
    1 medium cucumber, sliced
    2 avocados, sliced
    225g smoked tofu (or any tofu of your choice), cubed

    SESAME DRESSING
    1 tbsp white sesame seeds
    1 salad onion, finely chopped
    2 tbsp sunflower oil
    2 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
    1 tbsp maple syrup
    2 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar 

    Method

    1 Start by making the dressing. Put the sesame seeds in a small frying pan and cook over a medium-high heat. Stir regularly until golden and fragrant (about 3-5 minutes). Set aside to cool while you prepare the salad ingredients.

    2 Put the cooled sesame seeds and remaining dressing ingredients in a high-speed blender and whizz until smooth (or you can leave the dressing unblended – it’s just as good).

    3 Arrange the salad leaves, radishes, cucumber, avocados and tofu on plates or a large platter. Spoon over the sesame dressing and serve immediately.

    Cook’s tip

    This is a fresh, light and colourful vegan salad, though you could easily replace the tofu with grilled chicken, steak or cooked king prawns, if liked.

    And to drink...

    Wonderfully refreshing, with floral and perfumed notes, Waitrose & Partners Blueprint Viña Taboexa Albariño, Spain, is a perfect match.
