easy dinner

Friday, it rained for most of the day, so I stayed indoors.

Not having moved around much during the day, I wasn't too hungry when it came to dinner time.

I ended up making something easy and light.

Tofu Salad.

Instead of the usual shoyu based dressing, I used Chinese Chicken Salad dressing.

The results...delicious.

I washed some lettuce (I actually found a really teeny bag for 99 yen (about US$.99)), added some chopped green onions, shredded carrots and tofu.

When I went to the market the day before, I found some tofu in individual packets, perfect for one serving (about 70 grams). Four of these packets were only 128 yen (about US$1.28), really reasonable.

I think we'll be having this salad version as the weather starts to warm up.

p.s. I'm sending this to Deb for her Souper Sundays, a great event which is not only for soups :)

I like making this salad too with Chinese dressing- and I add some tuna. Perfect light meal for hot days

K and S said...

thanks Alesa :)

Usually when I make tofu salad with the shoyu based dressing, I add tuna Mary, but skipped it this time :)

Take care you two.

K said...

Yum! Honestly I used to avoid tofu at all costs, but have really enjoyed it in the last few years!

the salad looks nice & refreshing. I've been trying to eat more salads again because I'm gaining so much weight back on my "normal" eating trend! I've got a block of tofu in the refer, but too bad no lettuce...

Deb in Hawaii said...

It looks very fresh, light and delicious. Want to send it to Souper Sundays? ;-)

K and S said...

Thanks K, we stopped eating tofu for awhile too, but nowadays it is really delicious and really reasonable too!

I've seen all the good stuff you've been having Rick, am jealous :)

Thanks Deb, I've sent it over :)

Take care everyone!

I love tofu and salmon on my salad!

K and S said...

I usually like tofu and salmon on mine also Jalna, but was too lazy to make the shoyu based dressing :p

Take care.

With the extra poundage I put in in the past couple weeks, I better put tofu on the shopping list. Looks and sound delish!

K and S said...

I'm sure with all the work in your garden you'll lose what you put on in no time Rowena :)

Take care.
