 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced or diced
 2 large carrots, shredded
 1 small English cucumber, thinly sliced
 2 8-ounce packages baked tofu (plain or teriyaki), cubed
 1 pound salad greens
Thai Peanut Dressing
Garnishes
 Chopped dry roasted peanuts
 Fresh mint, chopped

Instructions

1

Soak noodles in warm water for at least 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly.

2

3

Prepare Thai Dressing. Thin with a little more milk, if necessary. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit.

4

Arrange greens on salad plates or bowls. Add vegetables and baked tofu in a spoked fashion on the lettuce. Serve with dressing and garnishes.

Note: To reduce the fat content, use organic peanut butter powder mixed with more milk to make it a peanut butter consistency.

To add another layer of flavor, coat the tofu with our Teriyaki Sauce before adding to the bowl.
