Tofu Salad - Easy Vegan - Make Ahead (Moosewood)

“Courtesy of the original Moosewood Cookbook. Love that you can make it ahead and just pull it out of the fridge at serving time. I'm serving this at a birthday party buffet to make sure there is something substantial for vegetarians/vegans in the group. The book recommends stuffing this salad into pita bread to make it a meal, which I've never tried but sounds great. Prep time includes the minimum 2 hours for marinading. Serves 6 as the main attraction, but more if it's a side dish. Enjoy!”

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch cubes and add it along with the salad veggies into the marinade. Stir gently.
  3. Cover and let marinade at room temperature for at least two hours. You can prepare this a few days in advance, in which case just keep it in the fridge.
  4. Serve cold or at room temperature, sprinkled with all or some of the toppings.
