Oh boy, did we enjoy this salad! Very creative idea Candice, thanks for sharing it. I've made it twice within just a couple days. First time I made it as written and we had it for dinner over whole wheat couscous with a green salad on the side. The next evening DH said why don't we have it for lunch the next day! This time I used toasted sliced almonds instead of peanuts and added some chopped cilantro. Also I reduced the soy to just 1t. since we're both cutting back on salt. Anyway, it was great both ways, but I think I'm going to continue the cilantro addition because we both love that flavor. What a great keeper recipe!
This was really good Candice! The only changes I made was that I used lime instead of lemon (I love lime with curry), and I didn't have distilled white vinegar, so I used seasoned rice vinegar. I also used light mayo (will try yogurt next time), added more red pepper flakes to match our tastes, and tossed in some lemon cucumbers and sugar snow peas from my garden. That's what's so great about this recipe - it's perfect as is, but it would work with chicken and any other veggies you prefer. A keeper, for sure. Thank you!
I did not have any dates on hand and replaced the mayonnaise with greek yogurt (a standard of mine to lower the fat content). I thought the flavors were really good but I think next time I will add one more chopped vegetable (probably celery), and lower the amount of tofu. Or else maybe I cut the tofu into too big of pieces because it just seemed to be too much tofu. Otherwise I really liked it!
Delicious!! I ate it wrapped in a flour tortilla.
Wonderful salad. Baking the tofu first helps it hold together. I cut the tofu into 3/4 inch cubes and it worked out well.
Would give this a 4.5 if I could. Nice side to a main Thai dish.
Very good salad. I used garlic salt instead of the fresh, and it was good like that. The only thing I'd try different next time was to let it sit longer, maybe overnight, so that the flavors could blend more and absorb into the tofu.
Oh this is so good! A great recipe for tofu. I added some diced zucchini and celery and subbed grapes for the dates (what I had on hand). In the future I'm going to try using less soy sauce and mayo, maybe try subbing plain yogurt for the mayo. Healthy, yummy, easy!
