Delicious, Versatile Tofu Salad

You are going to love this salad it a great vegetarian and even vegan recipe. It's so quick and easy to prepare with just a few ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Those of you who are familiar with tofu know it has a long refrigerator life unopened in its watertight pouch. If you tend to it properly, once it's opened, it will last yet another week. To store it, place it in a covered container, and cover the entire block of tofu with water. Drain and change the water daily.

Keep a package on hand in the refrigerator, for a go-to quick meal ingredient.

Mix up a small batch or large batch of the salad and keep it in a sealed container in the fridge.
