Chicken Salad

What you need: 

1 veggie or chicken-not bullion cube
8 ounces Butler soy curls
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
2 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons dill
2 teaspoons tarragon
2 tablespoons lime juice
salt, to taste
2 celery stalks, diced
2 green onions, chopped

What you do: 

1. Dissolve bullion cube in 2 cups hot water, almost to boiling point. Soak soy curls for at least 30 minutes. Drain soy curls, then use towels to press moisture out of them. The dryer the better.
2. Saute the curls olive oil for a total of 10 minutes, flipping over every 3 minutes or so. This will give the curls a caramelized appearance. Make sure you are pressing the curls down as well as you are cooking them.
3. Combine all ingredients and place in refrigerator at least 1 hour, I put in in overnight.
You can eat it plain, but I've been eating it on some bread as a sandwich.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Hmmm... the seasonings combo was very nice but I'm thinking maybe I don't really like chick'n salad.  It was too mayonnaisey for me and I think I would have liked it better with chickpeas in stead of the soy curls.  Still, it wasn't bad and I'd recommend it to those who definitely like chicken salad.

This recipe is so good its sinful...even my husband who turns up his nose at most vegan dishes asked for some!

Easy to make, although I added just a bit more Veganaise than the called for 4 tbls. If you let the flavors meld overnight, its to die for!

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT RECIPE!

How funny- I was looking up soy curls because I got my first bag at Vegfest Portland too! I used some already in an Indian dish and they were awesome. This recipe sounds absolutely delicious and I'll be trying it soon.
