Simple Protein Packed Asian Inspired Green Salad

When thinking about protein, salads usually don’t come to mind. I’m here to change that with this basic recipe. I have a simple salad that is full of protein and will leave you feeling full for hours! Did I mention that this has 41 grams of protein?


  • Ginger Sesame tofu (or a plant based chicken like MorningStar farms or Gardein)
  • Shelled edamame
  • Romaine
  • Broccoli slaw
  • Sliced almonds
  • Ginger Sesame dressing
  • Won ton strips (optional)


  1. Cook the tofu and edamame according to instructions. I will do this step last if I want my salad to be a little warm.
  2. Chop romaine
  3. Mix veggies together, garnish with sliced almonds and dressing.
  4. Allow some time for the tofu and edamame to cool. Add on top.
