Apricot + Tempeh Salad with Cumin-Lime Vinaigrette

Author Notes: All my best recipes seem to come together out of improvisation. This one was the same. I tossed together hearty greens and the season's best apricots with my cumin-lime dressing and some quickly roasted broccoli from the garden. Add tempeh and this quick summer salad becomes a full meal. Rebecca Fallihee | Eggplant + Olive

Serves: 4


  • 4 fresh apricots, pitted and sliced
  • 6-8 cups kale or other greens, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch broccoli, broken into small pieces
  • 12 ounces tempeh, cut into squares
  • 1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Cumin Lime Dressing

  • 1 jalepeno pepper, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • juice of 2 limes + a little zest
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. On a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the broccoli and tempeh, toss with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 10-15 minutes, until just tender.
  2. While the broccoli is roasting, prepare the greens in a large salad bowl. Then, toss them together with the broccoli, tempeh, apricots, and hazelnuts.
  3. To make the dressing, puree all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add the dressing a little at a time to the salad, using the preferred amount. There will likely be extra.
