Top Review by Dreamer in Ontario

I'm so sorry but no one cared for this at dinner tonight. It's very easy to make and would probably be enjoyed by those who like their tofu uncooked and cold, perhaps as part of a salad. Made for ZWT6. Edited to add: This recipe has been corrected to include cooking the tofu. Please don't let this review prevent you from giving it a try.
