Directions

  • 1. Add everything (except celery and red pepper) into a high-speed blender. Blend very well until it resembles a smooth, creamy hollondaise sauce! (Note: if you don't own a super powerful blender try soaking the cashews for a few hours first to help soften them.)
  • 2. Pour yellow "egg salad" liquid mixture into a large bowl. Add chopped celery, chopped red pepper and anything else you'd like to add, like chopped parsley or chopped white onion, too.
  • 3. Mix everything together with a spoon until nicely coated, like in pictures. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. Your raw egg salad recipe is now ready to eat!
  • 4. Serve on romaine lettuce wraps for an raw egg salad sandwich experience. How do you like to enjoy this raw egg salad recipe?

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

It's surprising that raw egg salad recipes have eluded me for almost two years. Believe it or not, I've never made a raw egg salad recipe before!

To my pleasant surprise, this raw egg salad recipe is, um, totally ridiculously incredible. It actually reminds me of egg salad! I have made a few sort of similar recipes in the past, but nothing that screamed "This tastes like egg salad!!" quite like this raw egg salad recipe.

This is quite a fatty, heavy-tasting recipe, so you'll want to ensure that you're serving it with lots of nice fresh veggies, especially romaine lettuce. Yum!

Another winner! This "egg-salad" is just THE BEST!!! I followed the recipe exactly as written, and just loved it! But then...we had marinated mushrooms in the fridge...we topped off the salad with these, and the wow factor went up a level more than we even thought it could. The "egg-salad" is fun to serve in smaller leaves of Romaine lettuce, making little salad "boats." Thank-you, Laura-Jane!

Yum!!!! This completely did my head in (Heston Blumenthal style)! No eggs & yet....! Lol. I took note of prev posters' comments & added some sliced mushrooms for perfect egg white texture. I don't think we have 'egg salad' as such in Australia but it seems this translates to our 'curried egg'. With that in mind, I left out the red capsicum but dared leave the celery which made for delish crunch & lightness. Well done, well done! ....I think I'll use the basics of this recipe as a substitute for too-overpowe

I loved it. I added a pinch of Black Himalayan salt to give it a bit more of the eggy sulfery flavor.
The stuff really tastes like egg salad. I just went vegan a few months ago and I love eggs.
In a Vitamx it's so quick and easy.
Thanks so much for the recipe!

Oh and the mushrooms are GENIUS!! They give the texture of egg salad for sure. Baby Portabella awesome! I also added parsley and green onions (left out the celery I hate the stuff).

Johnathan's Review

Raw egg salad recipe

5 out of 5

I LOVED this! I made it tonight, literally in minutes! My wife kept asking; Where are the eggs? She liked the yellow sauce but wanted more to chew on. She wanted me to add egg whites for the "egg" salad. I decided to double the veggies and take 1/4 cup of cashews and soak them, giving them a softer, hard boiled egg like texture. This will hopefully please everyone. For now, I love it and it tastes great!

Thanks for the website info! I will go check it out. I Googled cashews and see that it gives data for 100 grams. A cup and a half of cashews weighs close to 180 grams. So I can start there. Thanks again!

Tammyr's Review

Hi, my husband and I tried a few of your recipes and all have been great. I wanted to comment on this one because I used some different ingredients and I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else wanted to try them out.
We didn't have bell pepper in the house so I used more celery and just a couple of mushrooms. I pulsed the celery and mushrooms in the food processor which worked really well. I also added a bit of finely chopped red onion and some dill weed. It was really tasty and I'll be making it again next week. Thank you for all your great ideas!
