Frank’s Red Hot tofu and home made ranch spinach salad

Does anyone else get as excited about Frank’s Red Hot sauce as I do? My dad would always bbq chicken wings and we’d dip them in a big bowl of Frank’s, so ever since I was a little kid I’d just dip my fingers in the stuff and lick it straight off. Frank’s Red Hot + Me = True Love.

I love how the colors pop.

To make home made ranch dressing to serve one salad, take 2 table spoons of greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Give a dash each of garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, paprika, salt, pepper, dill and mix. Add more to make it stronger, but be sparing with the garlic and onion powder because a little goes a long way. Mix it all up and enjoy!

I can understand how some people may not like tofu, and to be honest I don’t love it. With Frank’s, however, this isn’t a problem at all because the flavor of the sauce is so strong. I just fried the firm, diced tofu in a lot of big splashes of Frank’s. Coupled with the cool ranch dressing you’ll hardly notice it’s tofu rather than chicken.

    • I know what you mean. Tofu is kinda hit or miss. I think it works here because Frank’s is such a strong flavor, and the creamy ranch as well kinda drowns it out. Definitely give it a try – I hope you like it!!

  1. I LOVE Frank’s! I only discovered it in 2005 and I was honestly upset with a few friends for never telling me about it before then.

    Tofu comes and goes for me, tastewise. I just found some fieldroast that I could get at the store before we left for Sicily. I am waiting to get into our apartment and then will start searching the surrounding neighborhoods for my veg dietary needs. I will keep this recipe in mind. I love it that you shared a do it yourself ranch recipe, it is so easy!

    • I love to meet other Frank’s lovers!

      I agree with you about tofu. Most of the time it’s a no for me, but sometimes it’s great. And definitely try out the ranch!

      I can’t wait to read more about your Italian adventures 🙂
