Serve this crowd-pleasing garlic tofu salad with sweet and tangy lime dressing for you next special occasion.

I love to serve this salad when I’m having a large crowd for dinner. This weekend I had my friends from New Jersey  with their children visit, who I hadn’t seen between 6 – 12 years ago. It was lovely spending time with them and reminiscing about old times. Their children were all grown, having last seen them when there were only little. I served  this huge garlic tofu salad with lime dressing which was a huge hit. Nothing remained. After lunch we all took a long walk on the property, going through the woods.  You may add your favorite vegetables for a personal twist, chopped Jicama and or cucumber is also delicious.

      That salad is overloaded! I love tofu and I use it as much as I can in many recipes. It’s quick to absorb flavor which makes it easy to incorporate in many dishes. This is something worth trying!
