Glazed 5-Spice Tofu Salad with Cucumbers and Radishes

Glazed Tofu Salad with Cucumber and Radish

Goodness, the beautiful salads keep on coming. Summer is made for salads – it is a season where little cooking is required. Thank goodness – all the more time to enjoy the long sunny days, the beautiful weather and of course, the beach.

We have eaten more Tofu on the past 6 months than in the past 6 years, I believe. We have the fabulous close-by S.E. Asian supermarket to blame with its endless variety of tofu, packaged and fresh. It is made into salads, dropped into broths, deep fried, and the flavoured ones eaten as-is quite often for a snack.

Today, we are using Five Spiced Tofu, although smoked tofu could be used if you can find it. Or smoke your own! In this salad, we glaze the tofu in a mixture of orange juice and honey – I have used Barley Malt too, so any sweet, syrupy, honey-like pantry item will be suitable.

Some similar recipes include: Black Pepper Tofu, Tofu and Chilli Salad and Tofu Stacks with Sesame and Spinach. And Tofu with a Peanut Sauce is pretty good too. All of our Tofu Salads are here. We also have other Tofu recipes – they are here.

Radish recipes include Braised, Glazed Radishes, and Wombok and Radish Salad with Peanut Dressing.

Have a look at our Cucumber Salads, Radish Salads, and also our Bittman Salads. Or simply spend some leisurely time browsing our Mid Summer Dishes.

Feel free to browse our other Tofu recipes too. All of our Salads are here.

Five Spiced Tofu Salad with Cucumbers and Radishes

Take a block or two of Five Spiced Tofu, available from your Asian Supermarket. Cut into cubes and coat with a mixture of honey and orange juice. Grill or saute it until browned.

Toss the tofu with chopped radishes and cucumber, and some peas. Make a dressing with soy sauce and lime juice and drizle over the salad.

recipe notes and alternatives
Add some pea shoots to the salad. They can replace the peas if desired.
