I had this Tofu-Taegu salad at a neighborhood restaurant, where it was the featured “salad of the day.” The dressing was actually a local bottled dressing, so I use one of my favorite “local-style” dressings instead.

I added some ingredients to add a bit more color to the dish, as I prepared this for a gathering. It’s one of those dishes, no one wants to be the first one to serve out of the dish and ruin the dish.
