4 servings


  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise (such as Follow Your Heart® Vegenaise®)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons dill pickle relish

  • 1 ½ teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon dried dill

  • ½ teaspoon black salt (kala namak), or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch ground paprika

  • 1 (14 ounce) package extra-firm tofu, cut into small cubes


  1. Mix vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, relish, sugar, onion powder, dill, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika in a bowl until well combined. Add tofu and gently stir to completely coat.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute yellow mustard for the Dijon mustard if preferred.

Black salt can be found in many Asian and Indian grocery stores. Substitute regular table salt for the black salt if you don't have it. Start with a little less than 1/2 teaspoon, then add more if needed.
