Suki Yaki Salad

A couple Sundays ago, I was lazing around the house with the family (including my niece Rachel), and thinking that it was definitely time for a new salad. We started throwing out ideas and the one that stuck was making a salad inspired by a favorite dish. There were a few contestants, but in the end… Suki Yaki won.

Additional Notes

There is definitely a lot of prep for this salad; marinate and bake the tofu, roast the kobocha squash, cook the wheat berries (for an hour!), and cook the brown rice, but it’s worth it and it can be had for a couple of meals, dressed ahead of time or not. The cabbage and / or Russian kale will hold up for at least 12 hours dressed.
