Tex-Mex Caesar Salad
A hearty salad with valuable amino acids, lots of vitamin C and folic acid. Vitamin C is important for the connective tissue and our immune system. Folic acid is needed for cell reproduction, blood formation and protein metabolism; pregnant women in particular need a lot of it.
Silk tofu contains a lot of moisture and is therefore ideal for sauces. After opening the package, it should always be kept moist and consumed as soon as possible.
