This is the vegetarian version of papaya and beef jerkey salad. The recipe is pretty much the same, except:

-Use gluten in place of beef
-Use pressed tofu instead of liver (pressed tofu = firm tofu, weighed down by an heavy object for a few hours or overnight to remove as much water as possible)

I found your blog linked on Wikipedia and I have to say it is great! As a Vietnamese person who grew up eating all of these foods (and many more) but not knowing how to explain what they were in English, I am finding your website very helpful.

Keep up the good (and delicious I'm sure) work!
