Cold Tofu Salad

1-2 Servings
10 min

Western Canada is experiencing a massive heat wave this week and all I can think about is eating cool foods. We’re taking minimal cooking that requires one to stand over the stove for hours or to turn on the oven. My go-tos include salad, salad rolls, vermicelli bowls and cold noodles

For Mother’s Day this year, we ordered take out from an izakaya restaurant and one of the dishes was a salad with cubes or tofu in it. I loved it and had an idea for a tofu salad. My version focuses on the tofu instead of the greens. You can add more greens if you’d like and make it a whole meal. Or I’ve also eaten it with rice and it’s equally as good as the rice soaks up all of that dressing.
