I thought this salad was exceptionally delicious and healthy. I recommend pressing the entire tofu block for at least 20 minutes before to remove excess water in the tofu (I place the tofu on a plate and put some weight on top -- like another plate with a bag of beans on top -- and then pour off the liquid once it builds up). I think the pressed tofu is able to capture the marinade better and just tastes nicer. Great recipe!



Loved it! Colorful, crunchy, tasty. Healthy too. I added extra peanuts because I like them a lot, but in fact the recommended amount would have been better. Might try a bit of cilantro or a dash of lime juice next time. Thanks for the recipe.

This recipe obeys the 4 flavors in Thai food: sweet, salty, sour, hot. Nice. It also has great textures. Many reviewers suggested pressing tofu before use. I agree but went one step further. Since the tofu is not to be cooked and there's a raw, beany taste to uncooked tofu, I microwaved the tofu on LOW for a few minutes until it was very hot throughout before pressing and draining. I also subbed garlic powder for the crushed garlic b/c I'm not crazy about a strong raw garlic taste, and I put the shredded cabbage aside to be used as a bed under the marinated ingredients. Really enjoyed the resulting almost no-cook summer dish.
