Simple Cucumber Tofu Salad with BBQ & Thousand Island Dressing Recipe

This is a very simple recipe to prepare and I would make this whenever my kids grow tired of stir fried vegetables. There are so many ways of cooking tofu and it can also be made into nice salad dish. For some greens and crunchiness, I topped the tofu with some fresh cucumber strips. You can also add some croutons to this salad.

Here is the recipe

Ingredients
Tofu, 3 blocks, cut into four each
Cucumber, 1 small, remove seeds and cut into strips
Hickory Barbecue sauce, to taste
Thousand Island Salad Dressing, to taste (Alternatively you can also use Mayonaise)
Salt, to taste
Pepper to taste

Deep fry tofu in hot oil until they turned golden brown. Drain away excess oil and arrange to tofu on a plate. Top the fried tofu with the cucumber strips. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the hickory barbecue sauce and Thousand Island Salad Dressing on the Tofu Cucumber salad.

Not a fan of these off-the-shelf salad dressing. Probably nicer with satay sauce...but then it becomes something like gado-gado...
