    Chef Beorn Hockenhull's Note:

    Vegans, Celebrate! Hear's a dish with more that just salad greens! At my restaurant, DrinkTaspaBar in Pomona, CA one or our most popular (yet simple) salads is a Tofu Tempura Salad featuring ponzu-marinated extra firm tofu, stawberries, Asian pears, shaved fennel, and toasted pepitos over spicy arugala and baby greens then drizzled with a white balsamic reduction. Tip: If you can't find Asian Pears, use Fuji Apples. Remove the core and julienne into a match stick slaw. To Make white balsamic reduction, take a sauce pan, add a tablespoon of EVOO and cook one tablespoon of minced onions, 1/8 teaspoon of minced garlic and cook until the onions are translucent. Add one quart of white balsamic vinegar. Allow to simmer (almost boiling) until reduced by half. Allow to cool. For cheese lovers: Add shaved Pecorino or aged Parmesan.
