1/4 c. mild Buffalo Sauce

1/4 c. red wine vinegar

2 T. lime juice

1/4 c. lt. brown sugar

2 t. salt

fresh grind black pepper to taste

1 t. fine grind fennel seed

1 t. onion powder

1 t. garlic powder

1 t. turmeric

1 t. dry mustard

1 t. smoked paprika

2 t. liquid smoke

1 t. dried basil

1 t. dried oregano

1/4 t. celery seed

1 T. steak sauce – I used PAMPA brand

19 oz. container water-packed, extra firm tofu – rinse, wrap in towel and gently press then let set about 15 minutes, unwrap and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

Combine all marinade ingredients in bowl and whisk well. Transfer to saucepan and heat till sugar melts.

Add tofu cubes and stir gently to coat. Cook on medium-low heat for about fifteen minutes, keeping heat low, stirring to evenly cook the cubes. Set aside.


2 lbs. yellow potatoes, boiled, peeled when cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2 inch cubes, then chilled till cold in refrigerator

  • or use any other potato you like, but these cook up especially clean and hold their shape when cooled and tossed

1/3 c. diced green pepper

1/3 c. diced orange pepper

1/4 c. minced sweet onion

1/4 c. coarsely chopped pitted Kalamata olive

fresh steamed green beans, chilled and cut into 1/2 inch segments, measure 1-1/2 c. for this recipe

2 T. lt. brown sugar

2 T. red wine vinegar

1 t. liquid smoke

1 t. salt

Place all salad ingredients in extra-large bowl. Toss to distribute.

Add cooked tofu in marinade to potato mixture. Toss to distribute evenly.

Salt and pepper to taste.


1/2 c. Daiya Blue Cheese Dressing (or more if you like)

Now add dressing. Toss to evenly coat.

Adjust salt and either serve now, or cover and refrigerate for service later.

NOTES: Not everybody likes a pungent flavor of Kalamata olives. If that’s you, then sub in black California olives

The added turmeric turns the salad yellow.
