This salad is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!. My best friend also made this for me. I believe this was the first vegetarian dish I’ve ever tried. I was very reluctant at first, but she convinced me and I tried it. I think I ate the entire bowl. I would recommend non-vegetarians to try this one.

Note: This vegetarian dish is well received by non-vegetarians. This salad is great as the main dish for a summer lunch and also makes a perfect side dish for potlucks. You can also serve it with crackers as an appetizer.

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vinegar, rice
1 cup celery, chopped
4 scallions, minced
½ teaspoon celery seed (optional)

½ cup mayonnaise, eggless
Combine tempeh, soy sauce, water, and vinegar in a covered 1-quart glass casserole. Cook in the microwave on high for 5 minutes, stirring once. Remove the cover and cool to room temperature. Add the remaining ingredients to the tempeh mixture. Stir well and chill.
