you may look at this and think it's boring, but i'm telling you it isn't! also known as the stephanie salad, the smoked flavors and the texture of the tempeh give this salad a unique hearty feel.

1/2 package of tempeh, cubed
1 portabella mushroom, sliced
half of an apple sliced
3 cherry tomatoes
1/2 cucumber sliced

small hand full of slivered almonds
(avocado is also an excellent addition)

marinade for the tempeh and portabella mushrooms:
1/4 cup of tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup of liquid smoke
1 tbl agave nectar 
1 tsp of ginger
1 splash of water

-let marinade about 20 minutes
-throw the marinade and the mushrooms and tempeh into a frying pan and saute until cooked through
