Tofu Salad Sauce

Around 20 years ago, I ate a most wonderful tofu salad at the home of Wendell's friend Steven. It was the sauce that made it so ono. He gave me the recipe at that time, but being the non-cook that I am, I never made it and eventually lost the recipe. 

I emailed Steven a few days ago and he immediately responded with the recipe for the salad. I only had the ingredients for the sauce on hand, but that's all I really wanted to make for now anyway. 

Tofu Salad Sauce

1/4 cup salad oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup shoyu
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped

Heat oil and add garlic. Heat until garlic browns. (Steven advised me to do this very gently, so I set the burner on low). Turn off heat and discard garlic. Add shoyu and green onion. Cool. 


Here's the rest of Steven's recipe for the salad portion.

Tofu Salad

1 1/2 blocks of tofu
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can salmon or tuna
1 medium tomato, diced

Slice tofu into cubes and lay on platter. Layer chopped onions, tomato and salmon. Refrigerate. Pour sauce over salad and serve.

Garlic? This is very different. We always have our tofu with ginger and shoyu. I want to try this. Yuuummmy. It looks fabulous!

I'm making this sauce and tofu salad tomorrow! My husband made a milk bread and cinnamon rolls yesterday. They were really good though I think we're eating too much carbohydrate lately...I need to lose weight like 10 pounds!
