  • Olive oil-1tsp
  • Fresh red chilli-1 small (finely sliced) (ground black pepper can be used alternatively)

Procedure:

Dressing:

In a bowl add in all the ingredients and lightly stir.

For Salad:

  • Cut cucumber into ribbons using potato peelers.
  • Cut the tofu into pieces of a baby finger size.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes to half.
  • Place a tofu on a cucumber ribbon and roll up the ribbon, repeat with remaining.
  • Place pieces of onion on cucumber rolls.
