Snow Pea and Enoki Mushroom Salad with Tofu-Tamari Dressing

  • FAST

Many people confuse tamari with ordinary soy sauce because both are made from soybeans. But tamari has a richer, cleaner and mellower flavor that comes out in the silky dressing on this light, crisp salad. It is also a boon for people with wheat allergies because, unlike soy sauce, the soybeans used in authentic tamari are not fermented with toasted wheat.
