Use Silken Tofu To Make Creamier, Healthier Salad Dressing

A rich, creamy dressing can take a salad from boring to delicious. However, most creamy dressings are pretty heavy. If you want something lighter and healthier, use silken tofu instead. Its texture is perfect for a homemade creamy dressing.

Since silken tofu has a very soft texture and can easily take on flavours from other foods, you can add almost anything to your tofu-based dressing and it will be delicious. Bon Appetit has a few suggestions to get you started. All you have to do is add silken tofu to each of these combinations:

  • Miso and toasted sesame oil
  • Lime juice, lime zest, and chilli flakes
  • Black pepper, chopped garlic, and onion powder

Subbing tofu into your dressing means you can enjoy more of it without the guilt of added calories and fat — and you don’t have to sacrifice taste.
