Ingredients

⅓ cup canola oil3 Tbsp rice vinegar2 Tbsp hoisin sauce (see Notes)1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds (see Notes)1 Tbsp sesame seed1 scallion, minced3 cup mixed salad greens¾ cup cubed baked tofu (3 ounces)½ cup carrot matchsticks or slices½ cup sliced snap peas

Directions

1. Place canola oil, vinegar, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds and scallion in a bowl or a jar with a tight-fitting lid; whisk or shake until well combined.

2. Place greens in an individual salad bowl; toss with 2 tablespoons of the dressing. (Refrigerate the remaining dressing.) Top the greens with tofu, carrots and snap peas.

Notes: Hoisin sauce is a dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce made from soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Asian section of your supermarket and in Asian markets.

Sesame seeds can be purchased already toasted. Look for them near other Asian ingredients. Or toast your own in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.

To Make Ahead: Cover and refrigerate leftover dressing for up to 5 days.
