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.

Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 3 tablespoons
    canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons
    rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 2 teaspoons
    reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon
    toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon
    minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1 14-ounce package
    extra-firm, water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 cups
    mixed salad greens
  • medium carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • large cucumber, chopped
  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.
