Tofu Salad with Asian Dressing

This was a quick lunch to prepare and made enough for four. Served cold it was a healthy and refreshing part of a filling lunch. You could also serve it warm by tossing it in a saute pan for a few minutes. Serve it over a bed of fresh salad greens or stuffed into a pita or rolled into a tortilla, perhaps with crackers or even crusty bread. Just combine all the ingredients and you're ready.
  • 1 lb. extra firm tofu, pressed a bit, then diced
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1-2 tbsp Spicy Cilantro Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
  • 3-4 shakes toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp back bean paste
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 scallions (green onions) thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • sesame seeds as garnish
