How to Make Insalta Caprese (or make it into a sandwich)
- Wrap tofu in an absorbant towel and place on a plate. Put a cast iron frying pan or other heavy object on top of the wrapped tofu. Let sit for at least one hour. This gives the tofu a wonderful texture by pressing out excess liquid.
- While the tofu is being pressed, mix the dressing by combinging the white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and chopped basil.
- When tofu is pressed, slice as desired, layer with sliced ripe tomatoes, and our the dressing over all. You can also serve this on a nice crusty rustic style bread to make a hearty lunch or dinner.
