The Mighty Eggless Salad Sandwich
Makes: 4  servings
Serving size: 1 sandwich
Yield: 4 sandwiches


  • 1 pound  firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup  chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup  light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons  finely chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons  dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon  turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1 cup  watercress leaves


1. To drain, press tofu to remove excess liquid. Slice tofu in half horizontally into two 1-inch-thick pieces. Invert a plate onto a jelly-roll pan and cover with plastic wrap. Arrange tofu pieces side by side in the center of the plate. Cover tofu with plastic wrap, then top with another dinner plate. Weigh the plate down with a can. Let stand for 30 minutes, until tofu is firm and most of the water has drained out.

2. Combine tofu, celery, mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, mustard, turmeric and salt in a bowl; mash tofu mixture with a fork until smooth. Cover and refrigerate, 1 hour, for flavors to blend.

3. Spread tofu mixture on 4 slices of bread; top with watercress and remaining 4 slices of bread.
