Apple and Ginger Salad with Tofu

This refreshing apple and ginger salad with tofu, is great served as a starter or as a light lunch served with warm crusty bread ….

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 as a starter or 2 as a main course


500 g apples (Jonagold)

1 lemon, juice (50 ml)

120 g dried figs

250 g tofu

8 tbsp rapeseed oil


3 lemons, juice (150 ml)

20 g freshly ground ginger

4 tbsp cane sugar

4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

Fine sea salt

1 bunch parsley, finely chopped


1  Wash the apples and cut into wedges. Remove the core and chop the wedges into 1.5 cm dice. Mix immediately with the lemon juice.

2  Remove the stems from the figs and roughly chop them. Add to the apples.

3  Chop the tofu into 1.5 cm dice and briefly fry in hot rapeseed oil, until golden brown. Leave to cool.

4  Mix the dressing ingredients, pour over the salad and mix well. Season to taste with fine sea salt and refrigerate.

5  Right before serving, mix well once more and garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Tip: the lemons will yield more juice if you wash them under warm running water and roll them back and forth on the work surface a few times, while pressing down gently. We like to use Jonagold apples for their aromatic, sweet tartness but the choice of apples is a matter of personal taste.
