Grilled Tofu with a Mediterranean Chopped Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/grilled_tofu_with_a_mediterranean_chopped_salad.html

From EatingWell:  Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Mild-flavored tofu benefits from this intensely flavored lemon juice-and-garlic-based marinade. If you have the time, marinate the tofu early in the day (up to 8 hours before serving) so it can absorb all the flavors.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of this mixture for basting.
  3. Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Cut the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices and place in a shallow glass dish. Add remaining marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or for up to 8 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, make Mediterranean Chopped Salad.
  5. Lightly oil the grill rack (hold a piece of oil-soaked paper towel with tongs and rub it over the grate). Drain the tofu, discarding marinade. Grill the tofu over medium-high heat, basting occasionally with reserved lemon juice mixture, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side (see Tip). Serve immediately, topped with the salad.
