Tofu Salad

Here's a great lunch recipe for you! This is my own recipe that I have been making for probably... 4 years?! I have of course been adjusting it over time and I think it's pretty close to perfect (for me) at this point. I make this every year for the bluegrass festival I go to with my family to feed all of the vegetarians in our crew for lunch every day, and of course I also make it at home for myself! I usually just use this for sandwiches but I think it would be great on top of any garden salad or maybe even as a dip or on top of crackers. Today I made a "tofu salad melt" by toasting a few pieces of bread with a slice of Tofutti Cheese then adding a few good scoops of tofu salad and some lettuce. YUM! Also, I always make this recipe with two blocks of tofu because I find it just goes too fast when I only use one! Hope you like it!

Ingredients (These are all approximations because I just eyeball it...)
Makes about 8 sandwiches

2 blocks firm tofu
3 heaping spoonfuls Vegenaise 
2 ribs celery, diced
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
1 1/2 Tbs. dill (to me, this ingredient is vital!)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. lemon juice
A few good dashes of salt & pepper

1. Place tofu in a large tupperware container (unless you plan on eating all of this at once!) and mash it up with a fork into small crumbly pieces.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all together with a fork. That's it! :)
