Asian Tofu Salad
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 14-ounce package extra-firm, water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
8 cups mixed salad greens
2 medium carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 large cucumber, chopped
Whisk canola oil, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and salt in a bowl.
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.
Toss greens, carrots and cucumber with the remaining dressing. Serve immediately, topped with the warm tofu.
