Salad
  1. Add asparagus, red pepper, yellow pepper, zucchini and red onion to medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.
  3. Place vegetables in a grill basket and grill until vegetables begin to soften. (Or place vege­tables on grill across grates to ensure they don't fall through.)
  4. Cut tofu in half to make two flat pieces. Brush on all surfaces with remaining olive oil. Grill tofu until crispy on all sides. Slice width-wise into 1/2-cm strips and add to grilled vegetables.
  5. Add dressing, cucumber and half of the cilantro, and gently toss together. Place equal amounts of watercress on four plates. Top with equal amounts of salad. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro leaves.
