This is the place for Hawaii Threads members to share your favorite salad recipes.

Entree or side dish. Salad balances the meal and the body.

My late kalabash Popo taught me how to make this one. It's a refreshing, healthy side dish, or good as a meal itself. Typical in Chinese cooking, the hot oil helps blend the flavor of the Oyster Sauce with everything. An important step is to let the Tofu drain thoroughly, as this helps the flavors penetrate in. Ono!

Tofu & Watercress Salad

Serves 6-8

Tofu (firm), 2 blocks, thoroughly drained, cut into 1" cubes
Watercress, 1 large bunch, roughly chopped, stems and all
Oyster Sauce (preferably the Lee Kum Kee brand with the little boy & girl in the boat on the label)
Sesame Oil, 3/4 cup
Ginger, freshly grated
Green onion, chopped
Sesame Seeds

Heat Sesame Oil just below smoking point in pot on stove. Arrange Watercress on serving platter. Then arrange Tofu over the watercress. Drizzle Oyster Sauce over Tofu & Watercress. Pour scalding Sesame Oil over the dish to "melt" the Oyster Sauce down into the Tofu. Finish the dish by garnishing with grated Ginger, Green Onions, Sesame Seeds and a little Shoyu. Enjoy.
