    Barb Gertz's Note:

    A light vinaigrette tossed with pasta, fresh produce and sautéed tofu makes this salad a hit. Good served with a sandwich or crusty bread and some fruit. Prep time is chilling time. Some of this salad can easily be made a day ahead. The recipe comes from Cooking Light.

      Well, I didn't have the dill, lemon juice and I substitued sherry vinegar for the red wine vinegar. I also made more dressing. I tasted it before chilling and it's pretty good! I can't wait to have it for lunch tomorrow. I will definitely make this again with the proper ingredients.

      This is a delicious, healthy salad! It is a great way to introduce tofu to your friends (and family) who think they don't like it. I have made this many times and it always gets rave reviews.
