    • 1 Boston lettuce
    • ½ cucumber, sliced in half
    • ¼ cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
    • ¼ cup of GoGo quinoa tri-color
    • ½ avocado, cubed
    • 2–3 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds (optional)

        • ½ tablespoon of yellow or Dijon mustard
        • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise 

        Preparation :

        For the fried tofu:
        1. Take a firm tofu block and cut 1/3 of it.
          Cut it into big cubes.
        2. Prepare 3 bowls containing beaten eggs, flour, and breadcrumbs.
        3. Dip the tofu cubes into the egg mixture, then into the flour, and finally into the breadcrumbs. Set aside. Repeat this step for all the tofu cubes.
        4. Heat a non stick pan with oil, and add the tofu cubes. Fry until all sides are golden brown. Remove and place on a plate with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
        For the salad: 
        1. Cube the sweet potato and place it in an oven-safe dish.
        2. Preheat the oven to 400°F add oil, and toss the sweet potatoes to coat them well with the oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
        3. Cut the other vegetables. Set aside.
        For the dressing: 

        Whisk all the ingredients together until the mixture is homogeneous. Adjust to taste.

        Assembling the salad: 

        Take a large salad bowl, place all the vegetables and quinoa in each corner of the bowl, and the fried tofu cubes in the center. Pour the dressing on top. Enjoy!
