This classic main-dish salad traditionally calls for diced chicken or turkey, bacon and chopped hard-boiled eggs. The eggs have been eliminated and the meats replaced with healthful soy-based analogs. Look for baked marinated tofu and soy deli slices in well-stocked supermarkets or natural food stores. (Avocado, another common ingredient, has been retained in this version.) Buy prepackaged salad to make preparation even faster.
MEAL PLAN: Cook some corn on the cob while preparing the salad. Serve the salad with fresh whole-grain bread and the corn. For dessert, try summer-sweet berries in individual dishes topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.
