Recipe: Spinach and Tofu Salad with Sesame Miso Dressing

Ingredients:

1 pack organic baby spinach (I got mine at Costco)
1 pinch sesame seeds (for garnishing)
1/2 block tofu (cut into small cubes)

Low Fat Japanese Sesame Miso Dressing:

1 tablespoon white miso
1 tablespoon ponzu sauce
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (ground with mortar and pestle)
1/4 cup water

Method:

Mix the sesame miso dressing ingredients until well blended. (You can heat up the dressing in a small sauce pan and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before use.)

Wash the baby spinach and drain excess water. In a salad bowl, toss the baby spinach with tofu and sesame miso dressing. Dish out and serve cold.

    I have been invaded as well :( Can I share the salad with you ?

    I gained 5 kg from spending 9 days at Tokyo on my recent trip. That’s like an average of 1.8kg a day?! heh and that’s not even from eating the good-looking foods like the ones u had during your cruise, sigh. I managed to lose most of it when I came back though… I guess having thinner wallets after vacation helps in a thinner waistline? ha ha

    I like the sauce for your veg salad. I didn’t know spinach can be eaten raw, keke

    Anonymous – You should be able to find Ponzu sauce in food stores…maybe specialty food stores. If not, just add lime juice to soy sauce and you get ponzu sauce basically.

    • Elaine C says:

      Hi I am from Malaysia too and never tried Ponzu sauce as well. Thanks for the tips of mixing lime with soy sauce. Will really appreciate if you could provide the estimated portion or lime juice to soy sauce. Thank you. Can’t wait to make this salad tomorrow as I have all the ingredients except for the ponzu sauce!!! Looks really yummy:))

    I love salad. Yours is pretty simple to make and sounds delicious. I would give it a try.

    My tips to dieters: Vegetables are a big part of the solution but do not forget to consume more fruits too.

    Finally Bee, your blog is amazing too. Thank you for stopping by mine. I will definitely make a habit to come back to read yours.

    I’ve lost my cheekbones a long time ago.
    and I will be going to Chicago soon, no doubt the hips will be gone too. Prolly the butt as well. Sigh

  22. Dave, 'LunaPierCook' says:

    Bee, chubby cheeks can be amazingly endearing. It’s chubby on the rest of the bod that you have to worry about! I love a good salad as well, and this one looks great … even though there’s tofu … ;-)

    You’re still quite pretty whatever the state of your cheekbones, Bee :) I should start eating lighter fare as well! America was way too generous on my waistline!

    Why would you think that the pictures are “best viewed with Internet Explorer”. In fact, they can be viewed with any modern browser — even better ones, e.g. Firefox and Opera.

    Why do you think you have five pictures, given that they are virtually indistinguishable.
