Simple Tofu Salad

You’d think that egg salad, which is made with eggs and mayonnaise (which is also made with eggs) might be a little hard to make if you don’t eat, well, eggs. Turns out you’d be wrong! These tofu egg-less salads are surprisingly convincing and, dare I say, even better than the classic. What’s more, you don’t have to eat it all in one sitting for fear of it going bad. Rather, leave it covered in the refrigerator overnight to let the spices seep into the tofu and make it taste even better the next day.
