Vegetarian salad, with a lot of flavor. Serve as a meal or as a side dish on a bed of lettuce or in pita pockets. Tofu may also be pan fried in a small amount of oil with a tablespoon of curry powder instead of boiling method.

Very tasty. I sauted my tofu with olive oil curry powder and honey instead of boiling. I used non-fat plain yogurt and added honey to the mixture. This is an excellent alternative to egg salad or chicken salad. Mine was served with whole wheat pitas! yum! Read More

I made this a while ago and never since. LOL. Just getting around to posting. I must say that I really enjoy curried chicken salad but also really like tofu. This recipe had nice aspects - grapes nuts zing from yogurt & yummy curry flavor- but I found I had to pan sear the tofu first with garlic and curry powder to get any flavor into it & then with the addition of celery (YUCK) I just couldn't wrap my tastebuds around this one. After the addition of additional dried fruit I was able to swallow down a bit of it (mostly felt bad abt wasting the food). Too many textures and it almost had a curried cardboard aftertaste. LOL. Just my opinion. Give it a go! You may like it. Read More

My Personal Note I tried to keep the preparation for the tofu simple and I agree that it can be bland if just boiled. I usually saute the tofu in oil with cumin or a mixture of spices (like curry as suggested in the reviews) and let it sit in casserole dish in the oven at a low temp. I also interchange raisins and cranberries or use both. Read More

I left out the rice and used rasins in place of cranberries. I used a pre-marinated tofu block as the base. It was fantastic with wheat pita!!! Read More

This is an excellent introduction to tofu and I have served it for many people sometimes incognito. I highly recommend cooking the tofu in a pan high heat olive or sesame oil with some cumin seeds garam masala curry powder etc beforehand. Also be sparing with the yogurt and the flavours of the nuts and cranberries will come through. Read More

Very yummy. I am withholding the full 5 stars though since I reserve those for recipes I consider "outstanding". I brought this for a potluck to work and received many compliments. As mentioned in previous reviews I would recommend you saute the tofu in olive oil with a few middle eastern spices for added flavor (I used garam masala cumin seeds and curry powder). I also decreased the amount of yogurt by about 25% and added a drizzle of honey. Served plain (not with pitas) and it was very good. Read More

Good but the tofu was a little too bland and didn't really absorb the sauce that well. I wi.ll try again however Read More

I really liked this one. I used lite tofu and fat free greek-style yogurt (Fage). I think it needs a little more spice or toss in a few more cranberries or grapes. I ate mine in whole wheat tortillas on lettuce and in a pita. It was yummy. Read More

Excellent mix of sweet spicy and tangy. For crispy tofu shake the tofu cubes in a bag of corn meal and a little cumin before pan frying in olive oil. We served the salad in pitas on lettuce. Delicious! Next time I'd go for a flatbread instead. Read More
