Start your healthy eating diet today with a bowl of this pleasing, fresh, and delicious spinach and tofu salad with sesame miso dressing–a wonderful salad served at my favorite Japanese joint. |


  • 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 miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon ponzu sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds ground with mortar and pestle
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
