Creamy Tofu Salad

This looks and tastes like egg salad, even though it's made with tofu.

14 ounces package firm tofu, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2  celery ribs, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon salt or  to taste
1/2 tablespoon black pepper or  to taste
Finely mash tofu with a fork in a bowl, and then drain in a sieve set over another bowl, about 15 minutes. Discard liquid.

While tofu drains, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, turmeric, and mustard in a bowl, then stir in tofu, celery, chives, salt, and pepper.
