Asian Tofu Salad


From EatingWell:  August/September 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

The best thing about tofu - besides its nutritional value - is the way it carries other flavors, such as the tanginess of this sesame dressing. Serve this warm salad with crunchy breadsticks and a tall glass of iced jasmine tea.

  1. Whisk canola oil, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and salt in a bowl.
  2. Place tofu and 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a large nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes total. Remove from the heat, add 1 tablespoon of the dressing to the pan and stir to coat.
  3. Toss greens, carrots and cucumber with the remaining dressing. Serve immediately, topped with the warm tofu.
