Tomato and Tofu Summertime Salad

My favorite tomato tofu salad. Even when I have no appetite, I can still enjoy this nutrition packed dish.

Ingredients: 3 generous servings

Tomatoes
1 medium
Silken tofu
1 block
♥ Oil-free shiso dressing or ponzu
1 tablespoon
♥ Ra-yu
1/2 to 1 teaspoon
♥ Sesame paste
1 teaspoon
Shiso leaves (for garnish)
2 to 3 leaves

Steps

1. Drain the tofu: Wrap the tofu in paper towels, place on a heatproof dish and microwave for 3 minutes at 600 W.
2. Take the wet paper towels off, re-wrap in dry towels and leave to cool.
3. Peel the tomato: Put the tomato on a ladle and dunk in boiling water for 15 seconds.
4. Cut into the peel with a knife and slide the skin right off.
5. Cut the tofu and tomato into 1 to 1.5 cm cubes. Finely julienne the shiso leaves.
6. Combine the tomato, tofu and ♥ ingredients right before serving.
