Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the potatoes and beans

  • Scrub or peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into quarters and any smaller potatoes in half so all of the pieces are roughly the same size.
  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed.
In a medium sauce pot, add the potatoes and enough generously salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Return the water to a boil for the green beans. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Add the beans to the bowl with the potatoes, stir in half the Mediterranean lemon dressing, and season to taste with salt and pepper (set aside the remaining dressing for the mixed greens).
While the water heats and the potatoes and beans cook, prepare the tomato.

2

Prep and cook the tomato

  • Cut away the core from the tomato; cut the tomato into wedges.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tomato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning once, until lightly charred and softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the tomato cooks, prepare the tofu.

3

Prep and cook the tofu

  • Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut the tofu into ½-inch pieces. In a medium bowl, combine the tofu, garlic-herb blend, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
In the same pan used for the tomato, warm 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

4

Dress the mixed greens

In a large bowl, toss together the mixed greens and remaining dressing; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the mixed greens to individual bowls. Arrange the potatoes, green beans, tomato, tofu, and olives on top and serve.
