This recipe obeys the 4 flavors in Thai food: sweet, salty, sour, hot. Nice. It also has great textures. Many reviewers suggested pressing tofu before use. I agree but went one step further. Since the tofu is not to be cooked and there's a raw, beany taste to uncooked tofu, I microwaved the tofu on LOW for a few minutes until it was very hot throughout before pressing and draining. I also subbed garlic powder for the crushed garlic b/c I'm not crazy about a strong raw garlic taste, and I put the shredded cabbage aside to be used as a bed under the marinated ingredients. Really enjoyed the resulting almost no-cook summer dish.
