    cup spring water

  • 3

    tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 1

    tablespoon honey

  • 1

    tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1/2

    tablespoon fish sauce

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh mint, minced

  • FOR SALAD

  • 1

    16-ounce block extra-firm tofu

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 2

    teaspoons loose green tea leaves

  • 3

    tablespoons white sesame seeds

  • 1/4

    cups baby green salad mix

Directions

1. To make the dressing, first place tea leaves in a cup and pour boiling spring water over them. Cover and let steep for 1 to 2 minutes. Discard these tea leaves. Combine tea and remaining dressing ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using. Makes 1/2 cup. 2. Place tofu on a flat surface and press out excess water with a paper towel. Cut tofu into 8 equal cubes. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and swirl to coat. Add tea leaves, sesame seeds, and salt, and saute until fragrant. 3. Place tofu slices on top and pan-fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Turn tofu and pan-fry the other side until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Drain tofu on paper towels. Cut tofu slices to desired size. 4. Toss together salad greens, pears, and tomatoes in a salad bowl. Arrange the tofu slices over the salad, and spoon the dressing on top.
