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.
