½ pound chicken, beef, or ham – cooked and cut according to preference
12 ounces tofu, firm drained very well
6 large eggs 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
¼ cup chopped onion ¼ cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons capers –
drained 3 tablespoons dill pickle – chopped
How to Prepare:
Note: chop meats to desired chunkiness after cooking. Leftovers work great! In a large bowl, mix desired main ingredient with remaining ingredients.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. I like to add a little horseradish sauce to
the ham or roast beef salad for some zip.
For egg salad: Mix everything but the eggs well. Chop eggs to desired
chunkiness and fold into mixed ingredients. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce
if desired. A squeeze of lemon also goes well.
For eggless salad: Mix everything but the tofu Squish tofu with your hands
or with a fork until it breaks apart. Fold in with remaining ingredients.
Eggless salad should sit for at least an hour, refrigerated, before serving.
Lemon or a few drops soy
sauce work great in tofu based salads.
**personal note*** Process meats find in a food processor for more of a
‘spread’ consistency. Don’t process with the remaining ingredients until you get the
meat broken down almost to the size you want. The spreads work very well on
lettuce leaves for roll-ups The chunky version works great over lettuce for a
