As a vegetarian, there are a lot of foods that I miss. One of them happens to be chicken salad sandwiches.

They remind me of summer picnics. They remind me of family get-togethers. They remind me of baby showers. Total comfort food, yet as a vegetarian, I’ve had to miss out for the last 10+ years! Such sadness!

UNTIL NOW!

Love Chicken Salad Sandwiches but are trying to go meat-free? This Vegan option is perfec

Honestly, this vegan “chicken” salad sandwich tastes even better than I remember when it was the real deal. I made it for dinner one night and was seriously bummed when all the lunch leftovers will all gone.

It was perfect on bread. It was perfect on a pita. It was best on a spoon right into my mouth. I just couldn’t get enough.

Honestly, I was so nervous for my meat-lovin’ wife to take that first bite. I was waiting on pins and needles to see what she thought about it.

Her words?

“Tastes like chicken salad!”

I may fail at a lot of things, but I’m happy to announce that I excel at this vegan chicken salad sandwich.
