Eggless Egg Salad
I wasn't sure how I was going to rate this but decided to go with 3 stars because it is a good base but needs so much more. I cubed the tofu and tossed it with soy sauce, cooking sherry, red wine vinegar, balsamic glaze and salt/pepper. I didn't measure any of these. I then brought water to a boil and added the marinated tofu and cooked for 15 minutes. While it was cooking I coarsely chopped celery, onion and water chestnut. Once the tofu was cooked, I drained it and added it to the vegetables. I used mayo (because I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out) and added more salt to taste. This turned out delicious. I am allergic to eggs but love egg salad. This is the perfect substitue. A couple of changes I may make next time: I love spicy so I may add either horseradish or jalepeno. I will substitue half the mayo with greek yogurt. And I will let the tofu marinate longer. I would also cut the tofu a bit smaller so that it resembles chopped egg more. So the recipe as is will bore you. But it is a great starting point and can please any taste with some tweaking.

Hot Italian Giardiniera
This recipe is phenomenal. I am from Chicago and like my Giardiniera HOT! This recipe tastes so fresh that I eat it with a spoon. I put it on top of everything. Awesome!!! I did not use cawliflower because I didn't have any. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Not quite hot enough for me so next time I will add all the hot pepper seeds. Thanks for the recipe

Jesse's Ginger Salad Dressing
I love this dressing. I was looking for something to make my raw ginger with. I stumbled upon this recipe. I didn't measure anything accurately (not enough time!) and I replaced the white sugar with 2 packets of Truvia. This is excellent. I used it on my salad with raw spinach, onion, beet, chicken, avocado and tomato. I will definitely make this again.
