Oriental 6 Bean Salad Recipe


Step 1

Mix dressing ingredients up together. Break tofu up into small bite sized pieces. (sorry I didn't get the amounts for the dressing, but he was going so fast, I missed it if he gave actual amounts...) Allow to sit while preparing the rest of the salad.


Step 2

Mix all salad ingredients except for the YA beans together in a bowl. Save three Ya beans for each plate. Braid them (as in hair) and lay the braided Ya bean around the side of each salad plate.

Step 3

If there is any leftover Ya beans, chop them and add to salad. Once salad has been thoroughly tossed, place mound on each plate. Pour dressing over top and serve immediately.
