    This was delicious. The sauce was amazing. I sort of accidentally bough banh pho noodles (Thai rice noodles) which were quite sticky but still tasted really good. I will add more radish next time.

    I really liked this! It was my first experience with tofu but I knew I wanted it a little more crunchy. So I baked it for 20 minutes instead of 10 and increased my oven temp to 400 for the last 5 minutes. I did serve this warm instead of cold. I think I would like it just a tad spicier so I will increase the siracha which I was conservative with this first time.

    Very good salad. Really liked the taste of the baked tofu. I wanted more vegetables - added 1/2 red pepper, cut into thin strips, 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks and 2 chopped green onion.

    I didn't care for this at all. It was very bland and I didn't like the fact that the noodles and broccolini were served cold/room temp.

    This was quite good. The dressing was flavorful and slightly spicy; I will probably add a bit more sriracha the next time I make it. The radish and chopped cashews add a welcome crunchy texture to offset the soft texture of the noodles and tofu. Leftovers heated well in the microwave, although the broccolini's bright green color became dull. I'm not a big fan of radishes, so I will try adding a different, crunchy vegetable the next time. I also plan to follow the suggestion of another reviewer of adding red bell pepper, carrot and green onion.

    I really loved this salad, especially the baked marinated tofu -- delicious! I added a tablespoon or two of Ginger People brand sweet/spicy ginger-chile-garlic sauce, because I wanted some sweetness in there, and I greatly increased the amount of Sriracha. If I made this again I'd probably decrease the oil a bit.

    I liked this and will certainly make it again. However, next time I'll experiment with the sauce. As written, it was a bit too oily and a little bland. The radishes struck me as an odd ingredient, but they worked.

    Pretty good, and nice for a hot summer evening. I didn't chill anything, but it still was cool and refreshing. My husband loved it, but I think I'd prefer these ingredients as a stir-fry, with less oil and a little cornstarch to thicken. We ate this as a one-dish meal, which means the two of us ate the whole thing. I did cut the oil in the dressing by 1 TB and that was fine, and I substituted a thinly sliced turnip for the radish. Daikon radishes would be preferable here, and I didn't have one in the house..
