Sweet and Spicy Healthy Tofu Salad

So I am not a vegetarian nor a big Tofu fan but I made this really yummy sweet and spicy healthy tofu salad that opened up my taste buds for tofu. It’s really easy and very healthy for you. You can have it as a side to a bowl of soup, Healthy Shitake Mushroom Soup Recipe which is what I did, or just eat it as your meal.
