    For the salad


    1. 1
      For the dressing:.
    2. 2
      Stir together the liquids with the sugar. Lightly crush & add the chilis & shallots to the liquid. Will taste hugely overwhelming - no worries. It is balanced by the tofu.
    3. 3
      For the salad:.
    4. 4
      Heat the oil over a medium-high flame in a large skillet. Author suggests cast iron - I use French stainless. Dry the tofu. Brown the tofu in the skillet - about 5 minutes a side. Flip and brown on the other side. Remove to drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Slice the tofu (when cool enough to handle) thinly, about 1/8" or so.
    6. 6
      Toss the tofu and all remaining ingredients with the dressing. Alternatively drizzle with dressing or serve the dressing on the side in little bowls to dip a bite at a time (my fav).
    7. 7
      Garnish with cilantro and serve.

      Beautiful salad, I only used 1 Serrano pepper (all I had on me) and wished I had more. Don't be afraid of all the onion it's not too much at all, any less wouldn't be enough. I love most things involving mint and cucumber... and chili peppers... and tofu. thanks for the recipe
