Vegan Egg Salad

img

This is one of my favorite quick, simple dishes. You can be creative with this vegan egg salad. Mix up your toppings, substitute your favorite lettuce as a wrap (collard greens work great), or add different seasonings to create variety. I like mine with a Tex-Mex twist (with cumin, chili powder, and cayenne) or a summer variety with dill and fresh celery.

If you are using the homemade vegan mayonnaise, be sure to start the day before since the cashews need to soak overnight.

For the Egg Salad

  6. Serve atop romaine lettuce leaves or a gluten-free tortilla.

For the Mayonnaise

  1. Rinse the cashews and place in a high-powered blender or in a vessel appropriate for an immersion blender. Add vinegar, onion powder, mustard and agave nectar. Blend. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a smooth, rich consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
