Hmmm, this salad was so delicious, I really mean it. The Asian inspired miso-garlic marinate and miso-lemon dressing were both heros in this recipe. The miso-garlic marinade gave the tofu incredible flavor, the baking developed the great texture, and the miso-lemon dressing made the final touch of this salad, so refreshing, tangy, succulent... with the perfectly baked croutons. This is definitely a salad that everyone enjoys and gives the rave reviews.
