Grilled tofu salad

We have new grocery store in our area in downtown Harrisonburg,VA  here is  the link bellow
Friendly City Food Co-op, I found interesting  foods on vegetarian isle, they have tempeh/tempe and a lot of choices of tofu, I will recommend this store to  my vegetarian friends :)

I found Italian herb tofu,extra firm, good for fry,grilled or just crumbled it, So I decide to grill it, Italian herb on tofu sound great to me as an ASIAN,I'm big with tofu and tempeh :)
So I made grilled Italian herb tofu salad,with my imagination salad dressing ;) which is something what I had in my pantry and fridge and work with it, and of course you can use any kind tofu you like.
