Asian Grain and Tofu Salad

Kelli Abatangelo


We have meatless Mondays in our home in an effort to cut back on meat and to eat healthier. I found this recipe in Bon Appetite magazine and the family loves it. The great thing about this recipe is it's quick, easy, nutritious and can easily be adapted to different ingredients.
