Marinated Tempeh Salad

Salad

  • Make a green salad with your choice of a variety of fresh greens, and added goodies.
  • I added baby spinach, broccoli sprouts, cut up cukes, shredded red cabbage, fresh snap peas cut into thirds, and a drained 12 ounce can of mandarin oranges (pineapple chunks would also be delicious) to a mix of organic baby greens.
  • Drain the tempeh from the marinade and toss into the salad along with some of the dressing (recipe follows).

Marinated Tempeh Salad (cont.)

Dressing

  • Add ~1/2 cup of plain unflavored low-fat yogurt to the drained marinade (I use yogurt by Stonyfield Farm).
  • Whisk together by hand or put into a blender and blend on low speed to smooth out the ginger and garlic chunks if desired. (Special Note: do not do this with any marinade that was used with uncooked meat of any kind.)
  • I really mean it that this dressing is good enough to drink - yum yum! Maybe you will think I have strange tastes :-)

Serve this main dinner salad with corn on the cob, fresh fruit like watermelon, and some whole grain breads to sop up the dressing.
