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.

Very flavorful and great texture. Smoothe and crunchy. I used black salt for a more "egg" like flavor and finely diced onions for a little more crunch. This is a keeper!

If you use Kala Namak (black salt) instead of regular salt, it tastes like real egg.

I followed the guidelines in the raw cleanse, so just the peppers and cherry tomatoes on the side. Might try with mushrooms next time. Such a great recipe to experiment with!

Love this recipe and made it several times now, then the other day I had some advacado to use up and when I mixed it in an the egg salad I found it almost replicated the texture and taste of the hard boiled egg yoke so combined with the mushrooms I found it was even more like egg salad!!

I didn't use bell pepper as my partner can't digest them very well

If you have a good serrated peeler, you can peel the red peppers. That makes them much easier to digest. Mine is from Victorinox, you can even peel tomatoes with it.

Hi Karla,

Interesting suggestion! It has never occurred to me to peel bell peppers. A great tip for those of you with sensitive stomachs.. As for me, I have an iron gut :)

The egg salad plot thickens... Genius Elaine!! I'll have to try it - with both firm avocado and mushrooms.... YES. Next level egg salad goodness! I love this kind of food discovery.

OMG, this is literally the best raw food dressing I've ever found! I had my doubts to be honest but this is spectacular. To anyone who wants to try, I also suggest throwing in some cherry or grape tomatoes. I find the light acidity of the tomatoes balances the savory richness of the sauce. Thank you Rawtarian!

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. :)
