Tofu Skin or Doubao 豆包 is the delicate and delicious skin that forms on traditional Chinese soy milk as it’s boiling. This protein-and-fat-rich delight is scooped up and sold in layered bundles fresh, fried, or fried and dehydrated. This particular salad was born of a late night craving and led to a grocery run where we discovered vacuum sealed beets on clearance and well~ the rest is history. —Darice Dan Chang

In This Recipe
Cut the tofu skins in half and sprinkle with spice. Chop the beets into 1/2 inch odd shapes.
Put all the veg except salad green on baking trays and stick them in a toaster oven or regular oven at 300 Fahrenheit for 10 min. The Tofu Skin should noticeably yellow and brown at the edges but the inside will stay tender.
Serve over the greens with your dressing of choice.
