After making my crispy baked tofu bites, I wanted to find some fun and flavorful ways to flavor the tofu and so into a bowl of bbq sauce they went.

Because the BBQ tofu bites reminded me of BBQ chicken, I immediately knew I wanted to use them on a salad, and that my friends, is how this BBQ tofu salad was born.
