Seared Scallops with New Potatoes and Field Greens

Ingredients

  • Dressing:

    • 1 cup silken tofu
    • 1 tsp. lemon zest
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1½ tsp. dijon mustard
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • ¼ tsp. pepper
    • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

    Potatoes & Scallops:

    • 1 lb. new potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 1¼ lb. sea scallops
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • ¼ tsp. pepper
    • 8 cups mixed field greens
    • 6 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
    • 2 tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Process dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Cover potatoes with water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Simmer until the potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes). Toss with half of the dressing and keep warm.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the scallops with salt and pepper. Place the scallops in the hot pan and sear on one side until golden and fully opaque (1-2 minutes per side).
  4. To serve, toss the greens with the remaining dressing. Top with potatoes and scallops. Sprinkle with chives and pepper to serve.
