Easy "Eggless" Salad

This is such an easy fix when you're drained from running around all day and you don't want to be tempted by junk (which is exactly why I made it today). It whips up super-fast, and is extremely versatile. Sometimes I'll just throw in random stuff that I have on hand, like grated carrot or diced red bell pepper. Just about anything works. Try it on toasted bread with lettuce and tomatoes for a great sandwich. Throw some vegan cheese on there too and grill it for a yummy melt!

1 lb. firm tofu, drained
2 stalks celery, minced
3 green onions, chopped
2/3 C vegan mayonnaise
2 Tbsp yellow or dijon mustard
1/4 C dill pickle relish (or sweet relish, if you prefer)
2 Tbsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
  • Throw everything into a medium bowl and stir it up until it's mush. Yum!
  • This recipe makes quite a bit, easily enough for seven or eight average sandwiches. Keeps well if covered in the fridge - it'll stay fresh for a few days, at least.
  • Enjoy!

Mmmmm! Something quick, made with Vegan mayo--even better (and I have not tried the one with grapeseed oil--will be getting some tomorrow). Okay, so this is the second "eggless" salad recipe I've come across this week--is it me, or am I missing something? Maybe I'm destined to make this after all!

To make this even better, you could make your own vegan mayonnaise. Here's a really good and easy recipe
