One of the foods I’ve missed most since becoming vegan a year ago is creamy foods; think mac ‘n cheese, alfredo sauce, potato salad, and chicken salad.  This creamy (vegan) chicken salad recipe really hits the spot and leaves me with no guilt as it’s cholesterol free!

Creamy Chicken Salad (Vegan)
serves 2-4
1 1/2 C. faux chicken strips (I used Trader Joe’s chicken-less strips)
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/3 C. tomatoes, diced
1/3 C. onion, diced
1/3 C. raisins
1/3 C. walnuts, crushed or chopped
1 C. basil, spinach or lettuce, finely chopped
2/3 C. vegan mayo
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt & pepper to taste
Chop or dice faux chicken strips and place in medium sized bowl.  Add peppers, tomatoes, onion, raisins, basil/spinach/lettuce and walnuts.  Toss together.  In separate small bowl, mix together mayonaise and lemon juice with salt and pepper.
Place in whole wheat or spelt tortilla shell or, if you’re being really good, in romaine lettuce leaf.
Roll up and enjoy!
