From The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy cookbook: "Combine nutty tempeh, crisp cucumber, and a lemony Dijon dressing and you end up with a hearty, protein-packed main dish that will make even non-vegetarians swoon. For extra flavor, marinate the tempeh for up to an hour if you have time."
Place 1-1/2 Tablespoons oil, lemon juice, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper in a small jar. Close tightly and shake vigorously to combine.
Place tempeh in a shallow dish and add 1 Tablespoon of the dressing; season both sides with salt and pepper and turn to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Heat remaining oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat; add tempeh and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and slice into 4 triangular pieces. Brush with 1/2 Tablespoon of the dressing.
Place greens and cucumber in a mixing bowl. Add remaining dressing and toss to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with tempeh.
