Salads are the most refreshing meal to have in summer and what our bodies crave the most. It’s important to eat according to the seasons and listen to our bodies. That’s why, in summer, when temperatures are higher, our body will naturally crave lighter, cooling foods. This Pressed Salad with Crumbled Tofu is the perfect salad to have as a nourishing meal in summer. The combination of the cooling and refreshing foods like cabbage, celery, radishes, cucumber and parsley and the plant-based protein from the tofu, make this meal the perfect balance of vegetables and protein, leaving you feeling satisfied and full of energy.

Try making this salad either as a main course, or as a side dish.
