Un-Chicken Salad - 2 ways!


Un-Chicken Salad, plant-based style. This vegan version is so delicious, and even better the next day! Have with salads, sandwiches, wraps, and more. This is a great lunch option to bring to work, since it's served cold or room temp.

Here are TWO salad options for you. This is not an oil free recipe, since I recommend to use vegan mayo in both options. However, feel free to sub with a 3 TBS cashew cream base, add extra spices listed below, plus 1/4 tsp pink salt, juice of 1 lemon, and 1 tsp of each: onion powder, paprika, garlic powder,

SALAD 1:

  • 2 cans chickpeas

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1/3 - 1/2 red onion

  • 2-3 stalks celery

  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

  • crack black pepper, to taste

  • 3 TBS vegan mayo (I use Sir Kensington's Classic Fabanaise)

  • 1-2 tsp of dijon mustard

  • 1/2 lemon - juiced

  • few dashes of dried dill

  • 2 tsp old bay seasoning

  • *optional* TBS vegan chipotle mayo (I use Sir Kensington's Chipotle Fabanaise)

  • If using, you can subtract 1 TBS plain vegan mayo

DIRECTIONS:

1. Drain and wash chickpeas. Place in mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher.

2. Finely chop the rest of the veggies and add to chickpeas

3. Add rest of ingredients and mix well

SALAD 2:

  • 1 can chickpeas

  • 1 bell pepper

  • 1 giant handful of spinach

  • 1/3 - 1/2 red onion

  • 1 stalk of celery *optional*

  • 2 TBS vegan mayo

  • 1 TBS tahini

  • 1 lemon - juiced

  • 1 TBS hemp seeds

  • 2-3 tsp dried dill

DIRECTIONS:

1. Drain and wash chickpeas. Place in mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher.

2. Finely chop the rest of the veggies (especially spinach), and add to chickpeas

3. Add rest of ingredients and mix well

That's it!

IDEAS:

  • Serve in romain lettuce leaf as "boats"

  • Serve on toasted bread of choice

  • Place into a wrap of choice

  • Use as salad topping

  • Eat as a side dish or on it's own

  • Add sprouts for extra raw nutrients and crunch!

Best if made day before for more flavor. But it can be made and served immediately! Stores for up to a week refrigerated. All ingredients used are organic and/or non-GMO.
