Best Vegan Chicken Salad (Chick’n) Plant Based Recipe

This is the best vegan chicken salad recipe I’ve made to date. Or should I call it vegan chick’n salad? Either way, it’s full of all sorts of flavors and textures … it’s sweet, savory, creamy, crunchy, and oh so very delicious. It’s easy to make, too, and can be put together in minutes with ingredients found in most local groceries.

It’s getting a little cooler around here and the leaves are just starting changing colors and the apples and pecans in this taste like they go with the season.

It’s delicious on toasted bread or corn tortillas … or even straight out of the bowl. Apples, grapes, and celery are in season and super fresh right now, so this was extra tasty.

The main ingredient in this is the healthy, appetite satisfying, and totally tasty chickpea. Chickpeas are delicious but also packed with lots of nutrition. They’re full of soluble fiber, help regulate blood sugar, and provide a hefty dose of protein.

    Oh, YUM! Thank you! We have just discovered that one of us has an allergy to oils (reacting to just about every vegan mayo). We rarely consume product like that, but when we do, I wonder if there is a recipe for vegan mayo that’s blended from whole food and doesn’t have any oil?
