Easy Tofu Crunch Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 lb firm tofu, drained
  • 1 1/4 cups celery, chopped
  • 3/4 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped (or sub in any herb - dill, basil, cilantro, tarragon..)
  • 4-5 Tbsp Vegenaise (vegan mayo)
  • 3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • pinch lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional to sweeten up a bit more - apple is also another nice sweet accent)
  • dressing spices:
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp fine black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • a few dashes mustard powder

Instructions

Squeeze your tofu dry with a paper towel and slice into large cubes. Steam for about 5 minutes. Let cool.
2. In a large mixing bowl, add all your ingredients and whisk into a creamy sauce. Fold in the tofu and begin breaking into smaller bits with a fork. Fold well until all the tofu is coated.
3. Add the parsley and celery.
4. Adjust salt and spices as desired.
5. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve - allow at least an hour for the tofu to chill and the flavors to marinate.
