Recipe

Yield : Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pints grape tomatoes, halved
  • Scant 5 cups of watercress (measured after thick stems are removed)
  • 6 ounces deep-fried tofu, cut Into 1/3×¾-inch rectangles (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • ¾ cup Miso Dressing, or more.

Directions

Combine the tomatoes, watercress, tofu, and 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds in a large mixing bowl. Add the Miso Dressing, tossing thoroughly to coat. Taste and add a bit more dressing if desired. Distribute the salad evenly among six small plates and sprinkle each with the remaining black sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Notes

Deep-fried tofu (sometimes labeled fried tofu) is available in Japanese markets; it comes in two styles: thick cakes and thin sheets. You want the thick cake (called atsu-age or nama-age in Japanese), usually sold in a 12-ounce brick in the refrigerated section. Many Japanese chefs prepare the tofu by soaking it quickly in boiling water (just a few seconds to remove excess oil), and then blotting it dry with paper towels. I find this step unnecessary, especially for this salad.
