Sea Asparagus Tofu from the Accidental Scientist

Combine all the salad ingredients, except for the sesame seeds, in a large bowl. Add the dressing to a small jar with a tight-fitting lid. Close the lid and shake. When the dressing is mixed, pour it over the salad ingredients and then mix, gently. Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds and then mix again gently. This is good fresh, or even after marinating over-night. Better still? I use the dressing for all kinds of things – lettuce salads, marinating chicken, just about any kind of anything that I want to add an “Asian” flavor to…try it!
