Beating summers heat with a chilled salad means coming up with a fresh spin on the greens theme, and this unusual concoction makes the best of summertimes apricot bounty with a hint of lime in the dressing for a fresh, clean taste. For a flavor twist, serve as a topping for an open-faced tostada on a flavored tortilla. The dressing recipe makes about 1 3/4 cups. Refrigerate any leftover dressing in a tightly closed container.
To make Salad: Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl, tossing to mix well.
To make Minted Lime-Tofu Dressing: Put ingredients into a blender, and process until smooth. Spoon dressing over salad as desired, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
