Soak the red onion in cold water.

Whisk the red wine vinegar, Thai sweet chili sauce, olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Remove the red onion from the water and pat dry. Now toss it with half of the vinaigrette and add the cucumber

Next sprinkle the tofu on both sides with cornstarch (this will help make the tofu crispy)

In a frying pan, heat some vegetable oil, carefully add the tofu and cook until deep golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side - then place on paper towels to absorb the oil
