1 bag Taylor Farms Chopped Salad, or salad base of your choice
half a block of firm tofu
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1½ teaspoons toasted sesame oil
½ teaspoon ume plum vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
1–2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
Slice tofu into ½-inch thick slices, cutting each slice lengthwise into smaller strips in the size you prefer. Lay flat on a large plate.
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, ume plum vinegar, and fresh grated ginger. Pour marinade over tofu strips, coating evenly. Let set for five minutes, then flip and give them a good soak on the other side. Let rest for another 3–5 minutes.
Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick frying pan over medium flame with 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Add 2 tablespoons chopped green onion, and sauté for 1–2 minutes, until beginning to crisp and brown. Add tofu strips in a single layer and sprinkle with ½ tablespoon black sesame seeds. Pour in remaining marinade. Sear tofu for 2–3 minutes on each side, sprinkling with additional black sesame seeds once you flip, until a crisp layer forms. Remove from heat and set aside.
Prepare and dress salad according to instructions, and top with sesame seared tofu.
