It has a fantastic crunchy texture from the celery and pickles, but is really creamy from the vegan mayo.  The spices, mustard, and fresh dill really kick this sandwich up!

Tofu is the perfect filler because it is light and packed with protein which makes this sandwich a great choice for lunch.  Add any sandwich fixings you prefer (lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, etc), but even plain this Vegan Egg Salad definitely holds it own between the bread.
