This simple Tofu Salad or Korean Dubu salad could not be easier and is one of my all time favourite tofu dishes. Is makes it very easy to boost your phytoestrogen intake which is great if you are menopausal, but not if you are taking hormone blocking drugs. I enjoy it on its one or as a side dish in a Korean meal. This recipe comes from the wonderfully inspiring Korean food blogger Hyosun from Korean Bapsang. Her recipes are always delicious and generally very simple so if  you love Korean food as I do, she is a great place to start, her Kimchi recipes are spot on too, I always have a batch in my fridge.
