Melon and Banana Slaw

The tofu makes a very creamy dressing, which you can use in many different recipes such as on tropical fruit for a first course or for a delicate mixed greens salad garnished with fresh fruit. Other possibilities include using it as a dessert sauce over frozen fruit-flavored yogurt or as a flavorful topping for cut-up fruit for dessert.

Quinoa is incredibly nutritious and delicious. It is the quickest cooking whole grain, as it takes less than 20 minutes. Cook a big batch and then use 2 cups to make this great looking and tasting salad or just follow the recipe. Once you taste it, you’ll want to make it often. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy taste. As always, use the best fresh ingredients you can get. This salad sings, “It’s Summer”.
