Light and delicious can co-exist in the right recipes



1 box rice noodles

1 12-ounce package firm tofu (I

prefer the reduced-fat version if I

can find it)

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

3 tablespoons orange juice

Mix honey, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil in a bowl.

Toss baby greens, shrimp, tomatoes, and avocado, then combine the two mixtures, coating thoroughly.

Fold mixture into a whole wheat tortilla and fold over to “wrap.”

Serves 2 to 5.
