Tossed Sweetcorn, Tofu and Jalapeño Salad

Tossed Sweetcorn, Tofu and Jalapeño Salad

This Tossed Sweetcorn, Tofu and Jalapeño Salad is a quick and easy summer salad that can be enjoyed both warm and cold. If you want something more nourishing and hearty, serve this salad hot from the pan; if you’re looking for a cool and refreshing salad, let your salad cool down. You can even let it sit in the fridge if you want a chilled salad (especially great for those hot summer days).

This super simple salad has an extra spicy kick from the jalapeños, so it’s perfect for those who enjoy a little heat in their salad. And if that’s not hot enough, you can even add some chilli powder if you want a little extra heat! This recipe makes sure to balance all flavours, so the heat of the jalapeños is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the aptly named sweetcorn and the acidity of the juiced lemon or lime. As well as flavour, it is important to balance texture in salads too: so here the crunchiness of the jalapeños and the sweetcorn is paired with the soft tofu.

This Tossed Sweetcorn, Tofu and Jalapeño Salad recipe is vegan friendly, so everyone can enjoy – simply heat coconut oil instead of butter in the pan when tossing your sweetcorn.
