Maui Onion-Tofu Salad

Layer ingredients in a serving dish, in the order given:

1 block firm tofu, drained and cubed
1/2 bunch watercress, cut in 1" lengths
2 medium Maui onions or any other sweet onions, sliced thin
2 medium tomatoes, cubed
*1 can water-packed tuna, or salmon
* omit this to make it vegan

Heat together the following. Pour over the layered ingredients just before serving.

1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup soy sauce

This is a popular dish in Hawaii, appearing at many potlucks. I've even added fresh cilantro and it really tastes good.

I combine them with whatever vegetables are fresh from the garden or farmers' market - onions, squash, zucchini, bell peppers, new potatoes. Chunk everything up into quarters or thick slices, place in a shallow layer on a baking sheet, add parmesan or sea salt, drizzle with olive oil, broil for 15-25 minutes.

Eggplant Parmesan

Use a few to make the sauce, then slice a few for the top

Thank you everyone for the suggestions.

Dirtgrinder - I had not considered umami but that is a helpful suggestion to experiment upon.

Dogmama50 and hellpaso - Slow-roast carmelization did not occur to me but I think that sounds very promising. I will definitely give it a try.

Honolulu21- Thanks for the Hawaiian recipe. I know very little (ok nothing) about Hawaiian cooking but from what I have read Hawaiian-type fusion cooking has a different approach worth checking out. Tofu and watercress are not an option in any way in my present circumstances but maybe someday when I return to Virginia I will try it.

I can't eat those tomatoes. They are bland and mealy.

I try to eat foods "in season" - they taste best that way!

When they are in season, stuffed tomatoes are delicious!http://diethood.com/2013/05/12/quino...toes-giveaway/

Here's a good recipe -
