Olive Bar Medley with Tofu "Feta"
Colorful and briny, small servings of this appetizer go a long way. Choose two or three different varieties of pitted olives from your supermarket's olive bar. Serve with fresh sliced baguette or bruschetta.
8 ounces extra-firm tofu
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 cups mixed cured pitted olives
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1 small red bell pepper, cut into narrow strips
1/2 to 3/4 cup pepperoncini, cherry peppers (other small pickled peppers),
or pickled garlic, or a combination
Slice the tofu into 4 slabs, crosswise. Blot between layers of paper towel or clean tea towels until you get out as much moisture as you can. Cut the slabs into 1/2 inch dice. Place in a shallow serving container in a single layer. Toss with the lemon juice and oil; sprinkle with the salt and oregano. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients to the container and toss gently. This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until needed, or served at once. Spoon small portions of this onto small plates; serve with cocktail forks or toothpicks.
