Tofu Salad Crunch Pitas

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by jennyblender

This was pretty good. I loved the idea of frying the tofu first to give it some great texture. The final product was a little on the bland side so I would recommend kicking it up a bit but otherwise this was a light but filing summer meal. THanks Dancer!
