Okinawan tofu and tomato salad

This is one more way to use local tofu in your meal. Okinawan tofu is quite solid so it is easy to toss in a salad. Also, maybe some readers have noticed that tomatoes at local farmers’ markets are really fresh and delicious at the moment. The tomatoes are grown throughout the year but winter-spring tomatoes on Okinawa are especially good as they are harvested when they’re ripe and ready to eat.
