Although don’t follow a vegan or vegetarian eating plan, I do have friends that are so I’m often looking for a nice lunch or brunch option. By using a vegan “mayo” this makes a perfect  lunch or brunch item.

I’m also a big fan of turmeric and it’s amazing number of healing properties. Turmeric modulates inflammation. Inflammation plays a significant role in cancer, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune disorders, asthma, arthritis, ulcerative colitis, periodontitis, eczema, psoriasis, and many more other ailments.

Nutritional yeast is a great source of B vitamins, potassium, and zinc. It also contains all nine amino acids, making it a complete protein like found in animal products as an additional benefit.

Salad Part

  • 16 oz. firm tofu, drained
  • 2 stalks celery, thin sliced
  • Chopped red onion, to taste
  • Clove of garlic, chopped fine

Dressing Part

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise, vegan or regular
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • Fresh ground pepper


Either cut your tofu into chunks or give it a little mash with a potato masher. Leave some larger chunks like you’d see in egg salad. Place tofu and veggies in a bowl. Mix the Dressing ingredients together and fold into the tofu. Serve on bread of your choice, or as the center of a green salad. Can refrigerate for a couple of days.
