Method: 
Place the tofu in a shallow baking dish. Add the soy ginger sauce and turn to coat. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Grill the tofu until browned, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and set aside. In a bowl, toss the greens with the vinaigrette. 

Place 4 slices of bread on a cutting board and spread with mayonnaise, if using. Top each slice with tofu, greens, peppers, and cheese, if using. Spread the remaining bread with mustard, if using, and place mustard-side down on the toppings.
