Teriyaki Tofu with Green Bean Ceviche and Tomato Salad

The Riverview Farmers Market is a weekly event that takes place every Sunday in the Heights of Jersey City. It features anywhere from three to five local farmers, an organic meat guy (who I think also serves as the butcher), a honey guy, food trucks, bands, and a bunch of stuff to keep kids occupied. For us home cooks, it also serves as a set palette for what veggies are peaking and which ones are coming into season.
Often, I'll run into neighbors and friends who know of my affinity for cooking veggies and they'll ask what I'm doing with this week's selection.
The truth is, not much, or more accurately, as little as necessary.
I liked the way the green beans, corn, red cabbage, and tomatoes looked this week, so for Sunday night I made a simple tomato salad with olive oil, salt, pepper, and chopped parsley; green bean civiche with toasted sesame seeds and nuts; and teriyaki-marinated tofu. Pictures below:

I am going to try to make this a weekly thing, so until next week...
