Sesame Lime Salad With Tofu Shreds

Sesame Lime Salad With Tofu Shreds

This is what tofu looks like when it’s masquerading as noodles. Pretty convincing, eh?

In most Asian markets, you’ll find tofu noodles in the refrigerated section with the regular tofu. “Tofu sheets” (pictured above left) are akin to fettuccine while the “tofu shred” (right) is more like spaghetti. Both make great additions to stir-fry and soups or, as in today’s recipe, tossed into a healthy salad.

“Tofu sheet” replaces fettuccine noodles.

“Tofu shred” mimics spaghetti.

Sesame Lime Salad with Tofu Shreds
Yield: 2 servings

1/2 pkg (4oz) tofu shreds
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thinly

1 Tbsp sesame oil
juice of one lime (approx 2 Tbsp)
1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tsp sesame seeds

  1. Toss to combine all ingredients except sesame seeds.
  2. Serve garnished with sesame seeds.

This simple salad is so light and refreshing anytime. It can be served cold, room temperature or even slightly warm depending on your mood. Because it keeps well, it also makes an excellent work day lunch.
