Asian Tofu Salad – a memory of the time I lived in China

Since I lived in China for several years this tofu salad is one of my favorite Asian dish. The roasted sesame oil, rice vinegar and the soy sauce melt together perfectly. What you get is a light, flavorful and satisfying. In China this salad is usually served with several other side dishes before they serve the main meals.

For the tofu salad you need:

  • tofu sheets
  • carrots
  • cucumber
  • celery
  • sesame oil
  • rice vinegar
  • soy sauce
  • garlic
  • chili flakes (optional)

  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, finely shredded
  • 3/4 cup celery, finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

I bought the tofu sheets in an Asian grocery store. I found it in the fridge where they store the tofu. You might need to ask if you can’t find it. I’m sure the shop owners will help you out.
