Spinach Feta Orange Salad
This fresh and zippy salad combines a citrus dressing with iron-rich spinach, home-made “feta” made from firm tofu, oranges, and toasted pine nuts.

The original recipe, which called for pan-grilled chicken, came from Shape magazine, but is no longer on their website. After making my own tofu “cheese,” which has the crumbly texture and sharp salty tang of feta cheese, I decided to make a new vegan version of this.

Suitable for:
vegan, gluten-free, reduced-sugar diets
