    blucoat's Note:

    This delicious main dish salad is a perfect balance between the crunchiness of the vegetables and the rich and creamy peanut dressing. If you have any leftover salad, you can turn this recipe into a "Quick Soba Noodle Surprise" by tossing 4 cups of the salad (about 1/4 of the recipe) with 1 pound of cooked, cooled soba noodles and 2 tsp toasted sesame oil. Add 1/2 cup of cubed Ginger Tofu and dressing. Recipe is from "The Real Food Daily Cookbook: Really Fresh, Really Good, Really Vegetarian" based on the vegan LA restaurant of the same name. Recipe requires at least 4 hours marinating time for the tofu.

    Peanut-Sesame Dressing

    Gingered Tofu


    1. 1
      Peanut-Sesame Dressing: Blend all the ingredients except the cilantro in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Add the cilantro and blend just until it's finely chopped. (Makes about 1 1/4 cups).
    2. 2
      Gingered Tofu: Drain the tofu and save the containers. Cut into 1-inch wide strips, and pat dry with paper towels. Cover a large baking sheet with more dry paper towels. Place Ihe tofu in a single layer over the towels on the baking sheet and let drain for 2 hours, changing the paper towels after 1 hour.
    3. 3
      Whisk the tamari, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger in a bowl to blend. Pour half of the marinade into the reserved tofu containers. Return the tofu slices to the containers, and pour the remaining marinade over. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 400'F. Oil a heavy, rimmed baking sheet with the canola oil. Drain the tofu and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes on each side until golden brown and heated through. Serve warm or cold, or at room temperature. (The tofu will keep for 1 day, covered and refrigerated.).
    5. 5
      Salad: Toss the cabbage, carrots, radish, and green onions in a large bowl with enough dressing to coat (about 1 cup). Mound the salad into 6 plates. Arrange the tofu around the salad and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
