Probably impossible to get right now.

After Pesach is just fine. Thanks for the information; it reminds me that I keep meaning to check out this tofutti stuff in general. (I was completely boggled when fed something that looked like ice cream, after a meat meal, at an Orthodox rabbi's house. It was tofutti, of course.)

your salad and my salad would totally be friends.

:)

But I forgot the red onions. They *make* the salad, you know?

*crunch*!
