Ever since our trip to Japan, we've developed an addiction to Japanese tofu salad and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Sure, 'tofu' and 'salad' aren't exactly the most exciting things to come together in a sentence but somehow, when the sweet tart sesame dressing is combined with the savoury roasted seaweed and soft tofu, magic happens. Once you tuck into it, you'll be wondering why you never tried it earlier.
Perfect for summer months, try the Japanese Tofu Salad next time instead of the usual garden salad and we promise you'll be craving more!
