I agree with SpecialK (Feb. 28, 2011); this truly is pretty darn close to the real thing. Although I liked it immediately after preparation, I found that the waiting time does improve the flavor. I have a "go-to" tofu egg salad recipe that I THOUGHT was pretty good until I made this. The ingredients' proportions are right on. I THINK what put it over the top was the real (Hellman's) mayo. Only two T. for the entire recipe..not a deal killer IMHO. My other recipe uses "fake" mayo. Fake is OK for some applications, but not particularly for a recipe that already reduces the cholesterol tally by a landslide. As usual, moderation is the key to a healthy diet. Jeninga75...try it with less or no turmeric if that ingredient is off putting, as it can be at times. I will be making this again:) Oh! and I like the idea of using it on toast (brioche?) Perhaps add a crispy leaf of lettuce? Hint: Use a pastry blender/knife to mash the tofu. Works like a charm:)
