Asian Tofu Salad

From: EatingWell

The best thing about tofu - besides its nutritional value - is the way it carries other flavors, such as the tanginess of this sesame dressing. Serve this warm salad with crunchy breadsticks and a tall glass of iced jasmine tea.

Prep: 25 mins

3 tablespoons  canola oil
2 tablespoons  rice vinegar
1 tablespoon  honey
2 teaspoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon  toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon  minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1 14-ounce package  extra-firm, water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
8 cups  mixed salad greens
2   medium carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
1   large cucumber, chopped
1. Whisk canola oil, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and salt in a bowl.
2. Place tofu and 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a large nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes total. Remove from the heat, add 1 tablespoon of the dressing to the pan and stir to coat.
3. Toss greens, carrots and cucumber with the remaining dressing. Serve immediately, topped with the warm tofu.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: The dressing (Step 1) will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Whisk just before using.
