Wooo, I like your sesame-crusted tofu! But it is the step of frying that I wish to avoid.

[Reply]
Velva 4/4/13 02:23

Tofu is something I really enjoy (seriously) but only when someone else makes it. I have tried using tofu in several dishes, and it is never the same.

I would gladly pull-up a chair and join you for this salad.

Mother Rimmy 4/4/13 03:53

I was just conversing with another blogging friend about combinations of ingredients that sound like they wouldn't fit, but totally do. This recipe reminds me of our discussion. I wouldn't expect strawberries with tofu, but with the ginger dressing and the sesame seed encrusted tofu, it sounds delicious.

[Reply]
