In our home, we love watercress! So when we found a Big Island farmer that was growing land cress, we were equally as excited! With leaves a little more slender and a deep peppery flavor, land cress is very similar to watercress - great for cooking or perfect enjoyed raw as a salad.
This recipe highlights the intense flavors of all our favorite island veggies complimented by Tomori's hand crafted tofu. Earthy, bold, and subtly sweet - this salad is refreshing yet comforting with fresh ingredients full of complex flavors.
20 Oz Tomori Firm Tofu, Cubed
2 Medium Tomatoes, Wedged
6-7 Oz Land Cress (or Watercress), Cut into 1" Pieces
1/2 Medium Yellow Onion, Sliced
To Taste Roasted Garlic
To Taste Sea Salt
1/4 Cup Akakai Green Onion, Thin Sliced (Optional)
