Miso isn’t just for bland soups ladies and gentleman, it is also for amazing salad dressings! This miso tofu salad is made of broiled tofu, asparagus, pea shoots, butter lettuce, zucchini, and snow peas. It is perfect for a healthy vegan lunch, and is so quick and easy to make!This salad takes about twenty minutes of prep time, but that is generous. This salad can be prepped as quick as you can chop and toss. There is about twelve minutes of cooking time, but only eight to ten is actually spent cooking. I allowed a few extra minutes for preheating the broiler.
