i had high hopes for this recipe because of the sesame oil but the vinegar was overpowering. i was able to salvage it with more sugar - about 2 tsps. and some sweet pickle relish - about 1 Tbsp. i think if i ever use this recipe again, i'll put 1 T of rice vinegar instead of the apple cider vinegar - it was just too sour. i didn't have peanut oil so i used vegetable oil. mixed it up with some cubed boiled chicken breasts and chopped celery, green onion and diced yellow peppers to make a healthy chicken salad. it was pretty good! my teenage daughter thought it tasted like it contained REAL mayonnaise. i will experiment with other tofu mayonnaise recipes till i find one i really like because i can't continue to eat 90 calories per tablespoon real mayonnaise :o( thanks AMYJO107 for sharing!

My wife and kids are very particular on what they eat and like. It is complicated to find recipes they all take pleasure in. They really enjoyed the Tofu Mayonnaise and we have replaced regular mayonnaise with this recipe.

Bearing in mind a previous comment, and knowing I prefer a not-so-sharp flavour to my dressing, I made it with only 1 tablespoon of vinegar. It turned out perfect. Next time I shall experiment by adding garlic and herbs as well. A fantastic, creamy recipe that even non-vegans raved about.

I added 1/2 tsp of dry chipotle spice, and pinch of cumin and thyme. Sprinkle of basil. Also 1/4 cup milk to help my blender out. I guess I could have used water too. This was delicious! FYI- I liked the amount of apple cider vinegar recommended.
