ChihYu Smith

Discover the deliciousness of silken tofu salad: a refreshing, no-cook dish packed with Asian flavors and creamy tofu texture.

Let’s get started!

Open the package


Make a shallow slit in one corner with a small paring knife to help you peel away the cover.

Trim the corners


Invert the tofu and take a sharp knife or kitchen shears and make small cuts to trim away all 4 corners.

Loosen the tofu


Press the box from the center to create gaps that allow air to enter, helping the tofu to loosen from the packaging. Insert a small paring knife in one of the corners to create a bigger gap.

Slice and serve


Slice the tofu and transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with a creamy tofu dressing of choice. Serve cold and immediately.
