Buffalo Tofu with Feta Dressing

(Don't forget to enter my giveaway here.)

This past weekend, "The Ukrainian" and I decided to dine in.  Dining in is something we would do more often if we weren't living apart.... gives us something to look forward to, I guess.

We both like to cook.  Okay, well, HE likes to cook, and I like to cook when I feel like it.  It saves us money, it keeps me from worrying about what's in my food, and I also don't need to dress any particular way!

Except during the supermarket trip.


I have started eating salad dressings that are NOT shelf-stable, which are sold near the produce in most supermarkets.  I find that they taste a whole lot fresher and are really not that expensive if you watch for sales.  I used to be the type of person who would eat their salads "dry"... without dressing.  Eck!  Now that I'm older and move averse to greens lately, I need a little flavor to help.

Marzetti's "Simply Dressed" dressings come in a cute bottle and many flavors, including vinaigrettes and flavors I've never seen before, like feta cheese.

To go with the dressing, I whipped up a quick appetizer.  You'll see more of this in an upcoming post, but I basically prepared this tofu similarly to THIS method and marinated it in some hot sauce before roasting at 425 for about 25 minutes <-- recommended time; I left mine in longer and regret that!


And here's the final product.  This is my vegetarian variation of buffalo wings.  This actually made really great finger food for a Saturday evening.

This dressing has a mild feta taste, so if you're averse to blue cheese, this is a good alternative.
