Yes - this recipe is just like the one at Upper Crust in Chico - especially with the addition of the rice vinegar and lime juice. I also added water chestnuts - 1 can per recipe  to give it that wonderful crunch - which is what the stuff from Upper Crust had. I miss those days when I could walk across the street from the Chico State campus to the Upper Crust Bakery for lunch.


There is a little baker called Upper Crust, in Chico and they make a Thai Tofu Salad. It is wonderful. I've been looking for a recipe for the salad for a long time when I came upon this one. I added the juice of a lime and rice vinegar to the dressing recipe, as it wasn't quite what I was looking for. I think the basic idea I had in mind is there, but it still wasn't perfect. I will keep working on it, but this recipe along with the lime juice and vinegar was a good base.
