Fruit and Nut Salad with a Chilli Lime Dresssing

Prep time 10 mins, cook time 10 mins

Serves 4

Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan

A vibrant, crunchy salad that’s light enough to start a festive meal.


For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • ½ tsp soy sauce
  • 1 lime juiced

For the salad

  • 100g of your favourite salad leaves (we like lamb’s lettuce, rocket or chicory)
  • 160g Cauldron marinated tofu pieces
  • 1 apple cored and diced
  • 1 pear cored and diced
  • 1 carrot cut into ribbons or fine strips
  • ¼ red onion sliced very thinly
  • ½ cucumber halved lengthways, watery centre discarded, peeled into ribbons
  • 50g mixed seeds (such as pumpkin or sunflower)
  • 50g mixed nuts (such as cashews or peanuts) roughly chopped

To garnish

  • A few fresh coriander leaves roughly chopped


  1. To make the salad dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together using a fork. Whisk again just before serving.
  2. To serve, divide the leaves between four plates, top with the tofu and add the rest of the salad ingredients, finishing with the seeds and nuts.
  3. Just before serving, drizzle a little dressing over each salad and scatter with the coriander.
