Non-egg salad

1 lb. extra firm tofu
1/4 cup mayo, or soy mayo
2 T. Dijon mustard
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 t. turmeric
1/8 t. celery seeds
1/4 cup chopped scallions, including the green  part
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 T. sweet pickle relish
Salt and pepper

In a food processor or blender, pulse the tofu until it looks like cottage cheese. If you do not have a blender or processor you can use a fork to mash well.

Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well until completely blended and smooth; refrigerate for one hour. Use as you would any egg salad.
