Spicy Tofu Salad

Spicy, sweet, salty and refreshing, this light and healthy salad makes for the perfect midweek dinner on these hot summer days. 

Serves 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 1 cup Snow Peas 
  • ½ cucumber - sliced
  • 1 pack tofu Noodles
  • 1 pack firm tofu - diced into 1cm chunks
  • 5 radishes- thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 tbsp honey/sugar
  • 4 tbsp Chinese black vinegar/any vinegar you have
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil (or any mildly flavoured oil)
  • 3 tbsp Mala Chili Seasoning Salt


  1. Soak the tofu noodles in water for 10-20 minutes. 
  2. Blanch the snow peas in boiling salted water for 1 minute. Drain and immediately cool in an ice bath or under running cold water. 
  3. Heat a pan over a high heat and add a little oil. Add the tofu and saute for 2-3 minutes until it starts to crisp. 
  4. While the tofu is cooking, mix the garlic, 2 tbsp of the Mala, honey/sugar, vinegar and vegetable oil to make the vinaigrette. Keep this in a jar in the fridge and it will keep for a week, this is a really delicious, versatile dressing. 
  5. To serve, mix the noodles, tofu, snow peas, radishes, cucumber, and 4-6 tbsp of the vinaigrette. Finish with the green onions and the remaining Mala.

Notes: Can’t find tofu noodles? Use rice noodles instead, they’re a great sub.
