“I love this stuff! I've been eating it on everything from falafal to my salads. Yummy. This is a slight adaptation from a recipe I found in a cookbook I got at the library called "Meatless Burgers" by Louise Hagler. The original recipe called for making the tofu mixture and using that as a mayo. replacement, offering other options to use 1/2 cup of the mayo. I wasn't a huge fan of the basic recipe but loved this russian dressing so I am posting it here in proportions to use the whole tofu mix. The original recipe called for whatever sweetner you choose. I use sucanat (unrefined cane sugar) but you could use what you like. You may need just a bit more ketchup and pickle relish. Taste it after you make it to see.”
