Strawberry and tofu salad

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Strawberry and tofu salad is a smart recipe to try.

The combination of fruit and vegetables is a pleasant alternative to taste seasonal fruit more often than not just as a dessert or snack.
This fresh salad is simple, colorful, fragrant and has a really delicious sauce, prepared with the strawberries juice. Tofu makes it a complete dish, rich in vegetable protein and nourishment.
It is a dish whose main ingredients all come from my garden, including strawberries and this is the real luxury.

It would take only a touch of extra virgin olive oil to have a delicious vegan dish. Strawberry sauce is one of the key to this colorful, healthy dish.
