Tofu Salad Sandwich

A light yet satisfying sandwich perfect for those hot sunny days

What does a tofu salad sandwich taste like?

This tofu salad sandwich has a soft, creamy, yet crunchy texture. The tofu does a wonderful job at absorbing the flavors of the fresh crisp veggies, while the capers and apple cider vinegar give this a little kick of tang.

How to serve

We personally love this on Dave’s Killer Organic White Bread Done Right topped with lettuce, tomato, and cucumber for a little extra crunch.

Serve it with a side of crunchy potato chips. It's even better with the chips inside the sandwich!

You can also enjoy this with some pickled veggies or with crackers as a spread!

Making the tofu filling

  1. Make sure you remove as much liquid from the tofu using a clean kitchen towel.
  2. Finely chop the veggies.
  3. Combine all the ingredients along with the mayo, mustard, and apple cider vinegar.
  4. Cover and let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine.
