This is great to bring on picnics. I made it one evening for a girls night in and I've craved it almost every night since.
Yummy for toddlers too - plus, it turns pink! My toddler calls this "pink fufu" - she loves her "fufu."

The directions are very simple, all detailed in the pictures below!
Tofu and Beet Salad
1 package extra-firm or firm organic Tofu ( I used Wildwood)
4 beets, steamed, cooled and peeled (love the organic Love Beets now sold by Costco - this makes it even easier to prepare)
3 TB Extra Virgin Olive oil
2 TB Seasoned Rice vinegar
Fresh ground black pepper and chunky sea salt
Fresh Thyme (totally optional but a plus for antioxidants - keep in mind, some kids may not like this flavor)
1. Chop the tofu lengthwise 3 times and then across 3 times. Then through the tofu like you are slicing a sandwich bun. Cut large cubes down into preferable size.
2. Chop the beets into 1/2" chunks (or smaller if feeding children).
3. Drizzle with olive oil, rice vinegar, salt, pepper and thyme if you wish. Enjoy!
Which sounds better: Tofu and Beet or Beet and Tofu?
