Korean-style Tofu Salad

annyeonghaseyo. je ireum-eun Catrina imnida...
that simply translate to Hello, my name is Catrina. This dish is actually self-created but inspired by various Asian-style tofu salads, mainly Japanese and Thai. but since the secret ingredient is Korean Spicy BBQ Sauce, i call it Korean-style. 

i bought this sauce from Fairprice Finest and i really like its versatility! can be used in anything - marinating chicken, for use in fried rice and even in pasta! this time, i combined it with Japanese Sesame dressing (for salads) to marinate the beancurd pieces. 
Dear thought the salad was nice. that made my day.
