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

Not for:

low-sodium or migraine diets

Instructions
  1. Cut the orange in half lengthwise, and peel one half, then cut into sections.
  2. Juice the other half of the orange and whisk together with the apple cider vinegar and the mustard.
  3. Toast the pine nuts in a dry skillet until golden brown.
  4. Assemble the salad, crumble the tofu "feta" over it, and then add the dressing.
  5. You can also use reduced-fat feta cheese if you don't have tofu cheese, or mix up the dressing 30 minutes before serving and marinate crumbled firm tofu in it.

    I never tire of spinach and citrus salads, and your Cara-Caras are striking. Did you find a lot of good ones this year? Honestly, I didn’t. I waited and waited, but they were always too bitter, more like a grapefruit than a sweet Cara-Cara.

      Susan,
      That was actually just my first Cara Cara, which came in our CSA basket (Garden of Eden Organics) and it was lovely. I’m still learning my way around exotic citrus. Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Nice! Sorry I took so long to visit! Are those blood oranges? They look beautiful against the mint. Great lighting. What a great idea with the tofu “feta”!
