Yummy Easy Dairy and Egg Free Chicken Salad

  A long time ago, when we still lived in Northern California and shopped at Raley's, and shortly after we learned of Jack's egg allergy, I came across a product called Vegenaise. We tried it once and it tasted like Miracle Whip... which I find revolting. Jack didn't care for it either.
  However, at Sprout's, they had a whole line of Vegenaise, so we bought a different version to try. This one actually tastes like mayonnaise, the only thing that isn't 100% right about it is that, straight from the fridge it is mayo like gelatenous consistency (um, mmm?) but once it starts to warm just a little, it becomes rather watery. No big deal though.
  Anyway, we made chicken salad for lunch (Chris had it as a sandwhich, my dad had it on crackers, Jack and I just ate it with a spoon and some veggie fries). It was easy and delicious! We will definately add it to our lunch time repertoire.

Chicken Salad

4 cans chicken breast chunks, drained
1/2 cup vegeniase
1 Tbs spicy brown mustard
1 Tbs yellow mustard
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp dill
1/2 tsp parsely flakes
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
Optional: 2 Tbs dill pickle relish, 2 stalks thinly sliced celery, 1/4 cup halved grapes, 1/4 cup sweet onions, chopped

Mix all ingredients together and serve on your favorite GF sandwich bread, with GF crackers, or enjoy it all by itself with a pickle spear and some black olives! YUM!


  1. What version of Vegenaise did you use?

    1. At the time I wrote this, we did not know my son was allergic to soy, but we were using the soy free version of Vegenaise. We used the soy free because it was the only one available at a local health food store, but had to stop using it once we learned of Jack's rice allergy (it has brown rice syrup.)
