Sliced Bean Curd Salad

by tina

Someone in my family, probably my mother, invented this recipe and then it got passed down :)


  • 1 pack marinated bean curd (pictured below)
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2.5 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1.5 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (Lee Kum Kee brand)
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro

(for about 4 people, appetizer portion)

1 pack of bean curd has 8 pieces.  Boil these for 4-5 minutes.  Drain the water from the pot and run cold water through to cool them down. Drain cold water. Repeat once more. Let it sit to cool down some more for at least 15 minutes.

While the bean curd is cooling down, prepare the sauce. In a large bowl, put in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and chili sauce. Mix.

Add the cilantro. Mix.

Slice each piece of bean curd into thin slices (about 2-3 mm thick).

Then add into the bowl of sauce and mix thoroughly. Let the flavor seep into the bean curd for about 10 mins and then serve.

This is a good dish for potlucks! And you may have to double or triple the recipe.
