I'm interested in two less than desirable forms of egg salad: egg white salad and tofu egg salad. The former has a few recipes out on crazy dieting websites. The latter has a few recipes found on crazy vegan sites. I trust neither of these demographics. I trust Chow.
I'm interested in sucking down a lot of cold protein on the cheap. Full fat egg salad makes me feel a little queasy in volume. I've had egg white salad from the deli case at Trader Joes, but it kind of left me cold - more like chopped egg whites, bland, not really bound together. By contrast, I'm addicted to a local product called Toby's Tofu Pate, a egg salady mix of tofu, mayo, jalapeno, and the usual suspects. I go through a pint of this stuff in one sitting as a midnight snack. It's crack. It's also expensive.
So, those of who with a more balanced perspective on appealing egg salads - do you have any good recipes for these alternatives? I'd be much obliged.
