Great-Grandma’s Tofu Salad

Quick and easy, this fresh, light salad is a dish both our vegetarian friends and our non-vegetarian friends love. Ginger gives this salad a zippy flavor.

Fresh ginger is sold in “hands,” because when ginger grows it often looks like fingers branching off a chubby palm.


  • A butter knife
  • A grater
  • A sharp knife
  • An adult to use the sharp knife

Great-Grandma's Tofu Salad

Print Recipe
Serves: 4


  • 1 block of extra firm tofu
  • A 3-inch long piece of fresh ginger
  • 2 green onions - thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.



Ask your Aunt or whoever is cooking with you to slice the green onions across so that they are little green and white rounds.


Ask your Aunt to peel the skin off the piece of ginger. Grating ginger can be really hard and the grater is a bunch of sharp little blades so you might want to ask for help. Remember the word please goes a long way to making things go smoother in the kitchen.


Slice the block of tofu in half the long way. Holding the two halves together turn the block over, one quarter turn so that you have an uncut side facing up. Slice through the block the long way again.


Now you can cut through the block the other way, making little cubes - about 3/4 of an inch by 3/4 of an inch.


Arrange the cubes on a plate. Sprinkle the ginger and the onions over the top.


prinkle the soy sauce over the top of it all and serve.
