The Perfect Summer Salad

The Perfect Summer Salad

This salad has been on constant rotation this summer. We are truly obsessed with this recipe. It’s easy to make and perfect for a warm summer evening. It even has a homemade dressing that takes only a few minutes to whip up.


  • Kale
  • Romain Lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Banza Chickpea Rice
  • Extra Firm Tofu
  • Strawberries
  • Goat Cheese


  • Olive Oil
  • Honey
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1/2 Shallot
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Cut your tofu into small squares and cook on medium heat in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook until brown.
  • Cook Banza Chickpea Rice per instructions.
  • While tofu and rice are cooking, prepare veggies. Slice tomatoes, strawberries, kale, and chopped romaine. We like to do equal parts of everything. Arrange in bowl.
  • Top veggies with tofu and rice. Add goat cheese on top — it starts to melt into a creamy mixture — SO GOOD.
  • Prepare dressing in food processor — the amount of each ingredient depends on how much dressing you want to make. This one is good to taste as you go. Feel free to add more of each if needed. You can’t mess this up!
    • Olive Oil
    • Dijon Mustard
    • 1/2 Shallot
    • Drizzle of Honey
    • Juice of 1 Orange
    • Pinch of Salt
    • Pinch of Pepper
  • Add dressing to salad and mix thoroughly. The cheese melts a bit and gives you the creamiest texture. Enjoy!
