All it takes is a small amount of beets to make light colored vegetables blush like a bride. Present this quick and easy salad that's perfect for a summer potluck or informal patio party and surprise the guests by telling them this is a high-protein dish. They won't be able to see the crumbled tofu that's completely hidden by the beets, but you'll know.

Blushing Summer Slaw

    1/2 medium avocado, mashed
    1/3 cup (80 ml) soy mayonnaise
    Salt and pepper

    Garnish
