Vegan 'Chicken' Salad: seitan, raw crunchy veggies, grapes and apples, tossed with a delicious creamy mayo dressing! Makes a perfect vegan sandwich. Great for a summer potluck too! The Best!


  • 227 grams -vegan chicken pieces, chopped (about 1 and 1/2 cups), I use Tofurky Plant Based Chick'n lightly Seasoned
  • 1/4 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1/2 cup red grapes, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 red apple, cored and diced, I like gala or fuji

For the dressing:

  • 1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise, I use Vegenaise
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Optional add ins:

  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds or chopped pecans


  1. Prep and chop the chicken seitan, vegetables, apples and grapes and add them to a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over everything. Mix well. Season with salt and black pepper if needed. Enjoy right away or chill in fridge first.

I enjoy this salad on my no knead artisan bread  as a sandwich or tortilla wrap with lettuce for lunch and it’s awesome served with crackers, sliced baguette or garlic bread for a potluck, YUM!!

  • Gardein meatless chick'n strips is also great option to use in place of real chicken
  • the salad will keep covered in the fridge for 3-4 days.
