Ingredients

  • 5 medium Yukon Gold or red-skinned potatoes
  • 14- to 16- ounce tub extra-firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon exra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium green pepper cut into short thin strips
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper cut into short thin strips
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes oil-cured or not, as you prefer, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup natural bottled vinaigrette or homemade vinaigrette
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Microwave or bake the potatoes in their skins until done but still firm. Let them cool to room temperature. Slip their skins off when they’ve cooled and cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch chunks and place in a serving container.
  • Meanwhile, cut the tofu into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Blot well between clean tea-towels or several layers of paper towel, and cut into 1/2-inch dice.
  • Heat just enough oil to coat the bottom of a wide skillet. Add the tofu and sauté over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until golden on most sides.
  • Combine the tofu with the potatoes in the serving container. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together gently.
  • Cover and allow the salad to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour. If needed, add a bit more vinaigrette to moisten, then stir again and serve.
