This has been on my meal plan for the last few months and for some reason or another it got bumped. This is great. I will definitely make it again.

Simple and yummy. I would increase the tofu marinade to up the flavor in the tofu: maybe 3 tbsp soy sauce, 2 of sesame oil, 1 of honey. The baked tofu was perfectly crisp and still moist. Loved the slaw and avocado was the perfect compliment.

Very popular salad, everyone loved it! I made 1 & 1/2 portions for the vinaigrette so there was plenty of flavor to go around, and subbed pecans for the cashews. We had it cold for lunch the next day and my husband commented that it still tasted wonderful, it was a big hit!
