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.

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!

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!

I made this a week ago and just LOVED it!! I had a bunch of odds and ends in the fridge so used them as my add-ins and to my surprise, the mushrooms we my favourite - they added that *egg* texture so that my brain said YES!!! This is EGG salad!!! .. I had all other egg salad favs in there too ... I also served this to my son & DIL and they loved it too! :)

What other nut could I substitute? Maybe pine nuts? ( no cashews for me)

Hi Pam,

For this recipe, instead of cashews you could use pine nuts or macadamia nuts or a combination thereof.

No other nuts will work though.

Wow. People have been raving about this recipe for years. I made this recipe today. I had high hopes and it lived up to them. Even my non raw children and non raw husband enjoyed this dish. I can't wait to try more of your creations.

How long does this last in the fridge? I was thinking of making this recipe in advance and bring it camping.

I am allergic to lemon, lime and all other citrus. Just wondering if there is a non-citrus alternative to the lemon juice you could suggest? Thanks!

Thanks for the tips Laura-Jane. Btw, why is table salt bad for the recipe? Would love to know. Also I'm very new to the raw diet. Thanks!! :-))
