Curried Tofu Salad Recipe

Makes: 6 servings, 2/3 cup each

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mango chutney
  • 2 teaspoons hot curry powder, preferably Madras
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 14-ounce package extra-firm water-packed tofu, drained, rinsed and finely crumbled (see Ingredient note)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 cup red grapes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation

  1. Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, chutney, curry powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in tofu, celery, grapes, scallions and walnuts.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Ingredient Note: We prefer water-packed tofu from the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Crumbling it into uneven pieces creates more surface area, improving the texture and avoiding the blocky look that turns many people away.
