This nutrient-dense salad creates an energizing lunch. The diverse array of flavors and textures are a delight to the taste buds! I often like to add some steamed cubed beets, which add even another dimension of color and flavor. Any dressing will work here, but the Lemon-Tahini Dressing below is especially luscious.

Preparation Note

The almonds need to be soaked in a bowl of water for 6 to 8 hours prior to making this salad. This is optional, otherwise just just dry raw almonds.



1 heads green leaf lettuce chopped
1 pounds extra firm tofu cubed and sautéed
1 cups cherry tomatoes halved
½ cups raw almonds soaked
1 avocados cubed
2 carrots grated
3 green onions sliced
½ cups alfalfa sprouts (or broccoli sprouts)

Lemon-Tahini Dressing

¼ cups sesame tahini
2 teaspoons lemon zest finely grated
¼ cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons filtered water
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cloves garlic crushed
¼ teaspoons sea salt
