  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (12.3-ounce) package reduced-fat firm tofu, drained
  • 2 teaspoons dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 8 cups gourmet salad greens
  • 1 cup (1/4-inch-thick) slices peeled cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Preparation

Cut the tofu lengthwise into 4 slices. Place the slices on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut each slice diagonally into 2 triangles. Place the tofu in a shallow baking dish. Combine the sherry, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Pour over tofu, and refrigerate 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450°.

Bake at 450° for 25 minutes. Cool to room temperature; chill 30 minutes.

Combine the greens, cucumber, and onions. Combine the juice and remaining ingredients; stir with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture over greens, and toss well to coat. Place 2 cups salad on each of 4 plates; top each portion with 2 tofu triangles.
