Vegan Chicken Salad

"This one is super yummy!! I absolutely don't miss chicken in this one! It comes from... oh.. one of my cook books--probably either La Dolce Vegan, How it all Vegan, or Garden of Vegan."

    I haven't tried this recipe yet, but plan to use dried apricots instead of pickles :)

    Delicious!! I doubled the recipe too. I used red onion and dijon mustard - very nice. I did like the curry powder addition also. Thank you :)

    This dish is SOOO tasty! I always double the recipe because it disappears too fast! I do not use the pickle, however I ALWAYS add an 1/8 teaspoon of HOT Curry Powder. But you can add ANY spicy addition like 1/2 finely MINCED Jalapeno pepper. WOW!

    YUM!!!!! Oh my gosh, best vegan chicken salad I've ever had. I added in some red grapes and toasted almonds as well as some paprika and garlic powder. I am patiently awaiting lunchtime now. It took all I had to not eat it for breakfast!! :) Thank you for this amazing recipe! I'm going to take it to Thanksgiving this year for sure. <3

    This recipe is from How is all Vegan and it's one of my favorites! I've made it many times and it never fails to please.

    I love the health benefits of tempeh and this is a perfect way to use. The flavors were wonderful. I used dill pickle instead of the sweet kind and I put this on a sprouted whole wheat bun with avocado and organic lettuce. I will make this again. Thanks for a healthy and wonderful recipe.


I live in Fredericksburg VA. I work at the ONLY health food store for miles... I just recently became vegan after a stretch of "on and off" vegetarianism... now I love to cook. I never really did until I became vegan!
