The Incredible Egg-less Salad by Chef Joi

Yesterday at Sevananda’s Meatless Monday, I was excited to present a wonderful recipe that’s quick to make and easy to enjoy.  Everyone who tried the Eggless Egg Salad were just astonished at how good it tastes.  I had a couple of men who have been strict meat-eaters, but now because of health concerns are trying to eat a better diet comment after eating the salad that it was about the best food they had ever tasted.  What a compliment!  One even asked if I would prepare all of his food.  Hmmm!!!

Anyway, here’s the recipe. 

Vegan Raw Eggless Salad by Chef Joi



  • 1 ½ cup Cashews
  • ½  cup  Water
  • ½  cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Turmeric
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced (1 teaspoon if using minced garlic in a jar)
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons Sea Salt (adjust according to your taste or omit)
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • ½ cup Green Onions, chopped
  • ½ cup Celery, diced
  • ½ cup Red, Yellow or Orange Bell Pepper, diced
  • Cayenne Pepper to taste
  • Paprika



  1. Prepare the green onions, celery and bell pepper.  Place in a bowl.
  2. Process cashews, water, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, garlic, sea salt (if using),  and mustard in a blender until smooth and creamy
  3. Add the cream mixture to the vegetables and stir well.
  4. Top salad with a sprinkle of paprika for color and it makes the salad pretty.
  5. Enjoy immediately or sit in the refrigerator for the flavors to meld together.
  6. Will last in the refrigerator stored in an air tight container for up to four days.

Serving Ideas:

  • Serve salad atop green leaves.  Sprinkle paprika atop after the salad is placed.
  • Cut roma tomatoes in half lengthwise.  Scoop out seeds.  Place salad instead the tomato halves and sprinkle paprika atop.  Now you have deviled tomatoes.
  • Eat as a sandwich between two pieces of raw bread.
  • Cut a cucumber in 1½” chunks, scoop out center and place salad inside.  Now you have deviled cucumbers
  • Let your imagination be your guide.  If all else fails, then place some salad on a plate or in a bowl and enjoy.

P.SI meant to take pictures, but the samples were going too fast.
