1/2of a large ripe avocadodiced*
4ouncesCrispy Tofu from Tuesday’s lunch(or as much tofu as you want)
~1/2 cup chickpeas or edamame,or both
1tablespoonDijon mustard,whole grain mustard, or spicy brown mustard
1teaspoonextra virgin olive oil(optional)
Salt and black pepper,as needed
Make the Hummus Dressing. Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl starting with 1 tablespoon of water. Add more water as needed to achieve your desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed.
Assemble the salad. Combine the chopped kale and/or arugula, tomatoes, carrots, Crispy Tofu, and chickpeas and/or edamame. Serve Hummus Dressing and/or avocado in a separate container.
If you are preparing your lunch the night before, do not dice the avocado up into the salad to prevent it from browning; instead, store it separately. If you do add the avocado directly to the salad, sprinkle lemon juice on top to slow it from browning. If you’re not using the other half of the avocado at this time, store it in the fridge in an airtight container with a sliced/chopped onion (the best method to slow the browning process) – you can use this half the next day for Thursday’s lunch.
