Prep

  1. Tofu - If tofu is packaged in water, press out liquid first, like in this video. Then slice into 1/2” / 1.3 cm thick strips. (Make these fairly long and skinny so they will fit inside the tacos.) (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  2. Make Sriracha mayo - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating first.) Chop garlic. Combine with mayonnaise, lime juice, and Sriracha. Taste and adjust with more lime juice or Sriracha if you prefer. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Marinate tofu - Place tofu in a baking dish. Whisk together soy sauce (portion for tacos) and honey and pour over tofu. Toss to coat tofu. Marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to a day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  4. Green onions - Chop green onions, combining white and green parts. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  5. Make coleslaw - Whisk together soy sauce (portion for coleslaw), vinegar, brown sugar, and oil. Add coleslaw mix, green onions, and sesame seeds. Toss to combine. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  6. Avocados / Limes - Prep as directed.

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!
