This Crispy tofu salad is so good, Mr M requested it on Father’s day. In case you do not know he hates salads. Not that he does not like vegetable he just does not like leaf. So, I was very surprised when I asked him what he would like for his Father’s day lunch? The one day that he could have ask for anything and I would have made it for him he asked for a salad. Not one that have steaks on it as well but one with tofu!! . “It’s the dressing” he said, “the dressing and the herbs is really nice”.
This salad dressing was a bit of an accident that turns out to be the best thing ever. It has orange juice in it because I ran out of lime! It has sweet chilli in it because I did not have enough honey. It is base from Yum Sauce which is a very popular Thai salad dressing. This dressing however is milder and fresher perfect for summer.
For this recipe I am serving it with young leaves salad any ready made from the shops or one you put together at home will do. There is no rules to it, just use your favorite young leaves. You will need to add to it coriander leaves, mint leaves, and Thai basil (sorry not westren). I used deep-fried crispy sheet tofu (because I love them) you can use soft tofu if you can not find these, just drain them and dried them well on kitchen roll, cut them into small cubes and fried them till crispy. Normal bread crouton would be just as nice too.
I promised you that you will love this dressing so much that you will make it every week and have it on everything.
