There’s something wonderfully satisfying about this Shan tofu dish, ideal for a hot day. Perhaps it’s the dressing that coats the strips of tofu with flavor: shallot oil and a little soy sauce, vinegar, salt, and fresh herbs, including fine strands of wild lime leaf (also called kaffir lime leaf). Perhaps it’s the smooth, firm texture of the tofu. This is comfort food for me.

Make the tofu a day ahead, let it chill and set overnight, and then you’re free to mix this up any time. Ser
