Hold the Ham Salad

Are you still afraid of tofu? I hope not, but if you need another way to try it here’s one of my favorites.

Use it as a substitute for ham in ham salad.

Start with extra firm tofu cut in to very small cubes, place them in a large bowl. Add finely chopped celery and onion, dill or sweet relish, a mustard you enjoy (I suggest a strong dijon), and a small bit of mayonnaise. Use the same seasonings and vegetable that you would use in a ham or chicken salad mixture. Stir the mixture well and taste it. Adjust the seasoning as needed.

If you’re still afraid to try tofu consider a half and half ratio with ham. It will give you lower fat and lower sodium than the traditional ham salad. Optionally you can also brown marinated tofu cubes before adding them, just follow the instructions in Just Taste It, the post where I first introduced you to baked tofu.

Until next time… Release YOUR Bon Vivan and Savor Your Life!
