FOR THE SALAD
FOR THE DRESSING
Prep time: 1 hour
Heat the oil and salt in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the tofu in small batches and saute until lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
Arrange bean curd, potatoes, spinach, and cabbage on individual plates.
Prepare dressing by placing all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth. If dressing seems too thick, add another teaspoon of water.
Top vegetables and bean curd with the bean sprouts and dressing, and serve immediately.
This salad is also good after being chilled.
