Tofu Salad with Refreshing Honey Yuzu Dressing

During my last trip in Japan, I picked up a bottle of pure yuzu juice with the idea of yuzu salad dressing or sauce in mind. Then came the not-so-typical day I felt like having a light dinner and out I took my yuzu juice from the refrigerator. Luckily, I already had tofu, cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, broccoli and romaine lettuce, which were all screaming salad at me.

So I started off by sending the cherry tomatoes, butternut squash and broccoli into the oven to roast for 20 minutes. While those cooked, I slightly browned the tofu over medium heat without oil (you can use some if your pan sticks). Then, I just chopped the romaine lettuce and whipped up this super easy and refreshing honey yuzu salad dressing in about 2 minutes!

Seriously, the word refreshing doesn’t do this light dressing justice! The aroma of the yuzu that comes through is so uplifting that it reminds me of when I’m winding down. All in all, this salad is just perfect for when you want a light, healthy meal or when you fancy a simple yet delish homemade salad dressing. If you can get hold of yuzu juice, I highly recommend you keep a bottle so that you can whip up this honey yuzu dressing anytime you feel like it!
