Hi Liz, I'm positive this would be delicious with tofu! Unfortunately, I have a legume allergy and can't eat tofu. Hope you find a great recipe!

I make a similar salad with fried tofu. Slice extra firm tofu into 1/2 inch pieces. Put a tbs or two of oil (I like peanut) into a pan over medium heat and lightly fry until brown on both sides. If you want it to really caramalize, add a tiny pinch of sugar (less than a teaspoon for a pack of tofu) sprinkled over the top before you fry. No sauce is necessary because the tofu will pick up the salad marinade.

Agree with lloreen's fried tofu suggestion. Partly, it depends on what TEXTURE of tofu you like. You could also use pressed (overnight, between paper towels or clean cloths, sandwiched between old newspapers and under a weight), or sliced and frozen...both these methods remove some of the moisture, and give a more chewy texture. Or consider artisan, craft or home-made tofu - if such is available near you - for richer TASTE than grocery store standard.
