vegetable and tofu salad

Tofu salad came to my rescue on the first day of office after new year – here’s how. New year and weekend tied together gives the real good break from home-office-home routine. But then came Monday again :( and although I got up early, time flew by while Sarita and I sat together talking and sipping honey-mint-lemon flavoured green tea. By the time we realized, time had quietly ticked by and I had only 15 mins left to get ready for office.
