what makes this chicken salad vegan?

To keep this sandwich meat free, we are using soy curls. If you haven’t tried soy curls yet, I highly recommend giving them a try. They are made with just one ingredient—non-gmo soy beans. You can buy them right online too!

Soy Curls come dehydrated and do need to be rehydrated before using in a recipe. They make a great plant-based meat substitute.

How to make Vegan Curry Chicken Salad

After the soy curls have been rehydrated, they get cooked in a little oil. Once they are done cooking, let them cool a few minutes before adding to the curry dressing.

The base of the dressing is a combination of vegan mayo and mango chutney. I love the addition of chutney to the chicken salad. It takes a basic mayo based salad to the next level.

Sliced celery and roasted cashews add a nice crunch to the salad. For a touch of sweetness, I like to add raisins. You can add as much or as little curry powder. I have found that 2 tsp of curry powder is the perfect amount of spice for me.

The combination of the mango chutney and curry powder is so tasty!
