    Interesting! I would make again. Good flavor. Was shocked when my two kids (ages 5 and 9) not only liked it, but asked for more! One of the first tofu recipes we have made.

    Amazing how much it tastes like traditional egg salad!

    A really nice, quick sandwich salad. I wasn't as gentle with the tofu as the recipe said, so it crumbled and looked more like egg salad, and I used some kala namak salt instead of regular table salt to give it a more egg-like taste.

    This was good and much faster than hard boiling eggs for salad!
