Watercress and Tofu Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by toninalani

This light and tasty dish is great for pot-lucks or even a light dinner. Substitute canned tuna with canned salmon, albacore, or fresh grilled fish. Use my Oriental Salad Dressing for other dishes as well.

This is a great tasting recepie, especially after adding salmon baked in gourmet teriyaki sauce. They blend in nicely together.
