makes: 6 servings (1¼ cups salad and 2 slices tofu each)

prep: 20 minutes      marinate: 30 minutes        cook: 5 minutes

Ingredients : 
- ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 16- to 18-ounce package firm water-packed tofu (fresh bean curd)
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
- 1½ cups chopped, peeled jicama
- 1 medium red sweet pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 cup coarsely shredded carrots
- 2 tablespoons unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
- 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro

Preparation Method :
1) In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, chili sauce, peanut butter, garlic, and ginger. Pat tofu dry with paper towels. Cut tofu crosswise into 12 slices. Place tofu in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce mixture, turning to coat tofu. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning tofu occasionally. Set aside the remaining soy sauce mixture for dressing.

2) In a very large nonstick skillet heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Remove tofu slices from the marinade. Add remaining marinade to the skillet. Add tofu slices. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once halfway through cooking.

3) In a large bowl combine lettuce, jicama, sweet pepper, and carrots. Divide among six serving plates. Top with tofu, peanuts, and cilantro. Serve with reserved dressing mixture.
