I have such a love affair with buffalo sauce, it’s not even funny. I know I have told this story before, but but I’ll tell it again, just for funsies. Before I was a vegetarian, the only meat I really ate was chicken, and pretty much the only way I ate chicken was smothered in spicy delicious buffalo sauce. If we went out to eat and a restaurant was offering buffalo chicken, I was ordering it…whether it be in a wrap, a bun, or a salad, I didn’t care. I love buffalo sauce. So, my only hesitation when deciding to become a vegetarian was if I could really live without buffalo chicken. The answer is yes. Why? Because when it comes down to it, you can put buffalo sauce on ANYTHING. Yes, anything. I always used to order this buffalo chicken salad from a local pub, and I was obsessed with it. So naturally, over the last 6 or so years, I have missed it. Once I started experimenting more with tofu, a light bulb went off and I realized that I could make the same salad at home with crispy tofu!!! I am proud to announce the buffalo tofu salad!
Crispy tofu over a delicious green salad; then adding celery, tomatoes, tortilla chip crumbles,bleu cheese, and creamy ranch is the perfect combination. I could eat this salad every day. Seriously. This is also one of those occasions where you can’t say, “Oh, I don’t like tofu,” because you would never even know there is tofu in this salad unless I told you. After frying it and drenching it in buffalo sauce, there is no way you can’t like tofu. No way.
