Tofu Salad

Today, I cooked Tofu Salad. It has various texture. I like it.

comment from Mrs. P.
The tofu Salad is colorful and tasty. Delicious!!

ingredients (serves 2-3)
1 bunch of coriander, chopped
2 cups of diced grape tomatoes
1cup of diced celery
1 cup of boiled black beans
1/3cup of black olives sliced
2-3 tablespoons of pine nuts, roasted
1/2 firm tofu
1/2 cup of rice flour
1/2cups of balsamic vinegar
extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, lime juice

Put the balsamic vinegar in a small pan and boil down it until it has body.
Press the tofu to drain its moisture. Wrap the tofu in a paper towel and place on the dish. Put another dish on it and put something heavy as weight ( 1 gal water bottle, a kettle of water or something else) on the dish and leave it 1 - 2 hours.
Cut the tofu into cubes. Sprinkle the rice flour on the tofu and fry it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil until it becomes crisp.
Put the tofu in the pan which has the balsamic vinegar and stir.
Put the coriander, the tomatoes and the celery in a big bowl and add 2 pinchs of sea salt, black pepper and 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, and stir well. Add the black beans, the black olives, the pine nuts and the tofu, and stir lightly.
Dish it up and sprinkle a bit lime juice.

If you don't like tofu, of course you can make a beautiful salad without tofu.
It also is yummy.
