  1. Excellent. We ate it for lunch on its own as a cold soup.<br/>I used canned tomatoes which were just fine, and malt vinegar.<br/>Delish.
  2. We really liked this! I wasn't sure how to serve it so I put some fresh baby spinach in a bowl then some warm brown rice and then this salad on top. Worked out really well that way. Will make again and again as a nice light summer treat! Thanks for the great recipe.....
  3. This recipe was delicious. I made a few adjustments but the ingredients go so well together. I used 2 teaspoons of sesame oil and 2 packets of sugar substitute (truvia). Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
  4. This is my favorite way to eat fresh tofu! I love this kind of recipe; the flavor is greater than the sum of its parts while nothing seems to get lost. I just do a quick drizzle of the sesame oil ~1.5 tbs. I recently found "Fiery Toasted Sesame Oil" with natural chili flavor in it all ready, making this even easier to throw together. I make the dressing with stevia and use a whole lb of extra firm tofu and two large tomatoes for this amount.
  5. Doesn't look so appetizing with canned diced tomatoes, but the flavors are pow-wow!!


Malaysian married to an American and moved to Japan. 3 kids; ages 15,13 and almost 11. Never learnt to cook until I came to Japan. Over the years, I learnt to substitute some ingredients not available here. In fact, starting a small cooking class last year after lots of persuasion. I loved to cook and experiment on new stuff.
