Tofu Salad

We had a really nice meal the other night at Mojimi on Capitol Hill and surprisingly, one of my favorite items was their tofu salad.  But truthfully, everything we had was really really good.  The menu there is expansive, so it will take several visits to break it down.  We look forward to making it happen.  

1 12oz package extra soft tofu
Daikon sprouts
Micro greens or pea vine sprouts
Thinly sliced red onion
Finely diced tomato

For the Dressing:
1 1/2 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp mirin
1 tsp plum sauce
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
freshly ground black pepper

Combine dress ingredients and whisk together.  
Slice tofu into 1/2" thick squares
Put a little of the dressing on the center of your serving dish.
Lay the tofu over top.
Sprinkle some of each of the red onion, micro greens, daikon sprouts, tomato over top.
Drizzle some of the dressing over top.
This is so fresh and clean, don't let the tofu turn you off if you are not a tofu lover.  The extra soft tofu is like eating luscious silk and takes on whatever flavor you marry with it.
