Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place everything (except celery and red pepper) into a high-speed blender. Blend very well until it resembles a smooth, creamy Hollondaise sauce.
  • 2. Pour yellow “egg salad” liquid mixture into a large bowl. Add finely chopped celery and red pepper.
  • 3. Stir everything together with a spoon until celery and red pepper are nicely coated.
  • 4. Enjoy immediately or store for up to 4 days in the fridge.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This cashew-based mock egg salad recipe tastes surprisingly like the real thing.  It’s very rich and satisfying, and tastes best when balanced with light, fresh veggies, especially romaine lettuce. 

If your blender isn’t powerful and has a difficult time blending harder items, consider soaking the cashews in warm water for an hour to soften them. Rinse and pat dry before using.

Another idea is to add some chopped mushroom to the red bell pepper and celery. The chewy texture of the mushrooms resembles the texture of egg whites.

Just made this for lunch and I can't wait to make it again (probably tomorrow). I'm thinking this will also make really good wrap filling along with some rocket & spinach yumm yumm!

Thank you for making your recipes so easy to make, I've bought many raw 'cook' books and most have way too complex recipes for a busy person to cope with so you're my new food hero <3 :)

Aww, such kind words Gabriella! I'm so glad that you enjoyed this one. Definitely would be perfect in a wrap with spinach!! It pairs beautifully with spinach. :)

Egg slicer works great with the white button mushrooms. I cut them 2 directions in the slicer. :)

I really like the base mixture! After making it a few times, I prefer much less celery and peppers. Definitely loved the the added 2 med-lg white button mushrooms, 1/8 tsp dill, and a pinch of mustard powder (3 serving).

I used the egg slicer for the mushroom to get the same size pieces I am used to with hard boiled eggs.

I want to try it spread on one of your crackers or bread. Which would you recommend as a complimentary taste combination?

I'd have to say either the onion bread (could get soggy, but the flavor combo is divine) or some very almost flavor-less simple crackers, like these: https://www.therawtarian.com/basic-raw-cracker-recipe

This is a good one, I must admit.

But it could also be that your tastebuds are changing, and you are becoming one of those annoying people who thinks healthy food tastes delicious ;)

Raw egg salad recipe

Oh my goodness! This was on the meal plan for the 7-day cleanse and to be honest I was dreading it because I HATE egg salad. However, I made myself a promise that during this transition to a healthier lifestyle I would try anything once and I am so glad that I did! I am in love with this recipe!!! I did add a couple of extra pinches of unrefined salt, some fresh ground black pepper, a few shakes of cayenne and a few shakes of dry ground mustard - just enough to give it a little extra kick of flavor, but not enough to make it hot as I am not a fan of hot/very spicy foods. This recipe should be called the "better than egg salad recipe." ;-)

Delicious! I added dill. Thought about adding mushrooms and probably will next time after reading some of the comments. :-)

I also added some chopped mushrooms and 1/2 tsp black salt. Wow! The hubs said are you sure there is no eggs in that? The salt really adds an eggy flavor.
