Haven't tried yet because I cannot stand beets!!! Any suggestions for a substitute?
Composed Salad with Pickled Beets & Smoked Tofu
From EatingWell: July/August 2011
This composed salad is an artful arrangement of greens, hard-boiled egg, smoked tofu, beets and snap peas drizzled with a cool, creamy dill dressing. It’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. We like smoked tofu, but any flavored baked tofu would work well in this recipe. Serve with iced tea.

I skipped the tofu and used smoked turkey from the deli instead. Also, didn't have dill on hand, so replaced with some dried tarragon, and I generally try to substitute fat-free sour cream for Greek yogurt. Lastly, romaine lettuce instead of bibb.
Flavors might not be precisely as intended, but both SO and me enjoyed this salad a lot. Very simple and good mix of flavors. Normally I have a tough time with radicchio, but the dressing and other components covered the bitterness. I do think this would have been even better with a fresh head of bibb/Boston lettuce--something buttery and a tad sweet.
I'll be saving this one for early spring, when the beets, peas, and bibb lettuce are at their peak. Very good.
I smoked my own tofu for this recipe and I have to say, it really made this salad stand out! It's filling, fresh and colorful. It made a really great lunch and made my co-workers jealous!
This was a great tofu salad!! Its the perfect assortment of vegetables, eggs, and other ingredients make the salad super filling and super tasty. Before tossing, make sure you press the tofu very well. I used a press from TofuXpress and it made the preparation so much easier. Great salad.
Love salads like this that highlight more than just the lettuce - although there is nothing wrong with lettuce. The mix of textures and flavors you can get are great. I always go for something savory, something sweet, something tart...add some creaminess and crunch and you're golden. Try this Pear, Gorgonzola, Walnut salad http://tiny.cc/lvjms
