Vegan Chicken Salad

Vegan Chicken Salad

Last weekend I learned that a gigantic Whole Foods opened just 7 miles away from me. I HAD to check it out. Having been to some disappointing Whole Foods in the LA/Orange county area, I was not expecting much. I was shocked by how AMAZING this particular location was. They have everything from a decent vegetarian/vegan section of the deli as well as a tea bar and a separate coffee bar.

The Tustin Whole Foods is definitely going to be a shop I frequent at least weekly.

After seeing and sampling (thank goodness for the open sampling of ALL items at the store) this vegan chicken salad, I had to get some for lunch this week. Normally I don't like anything drenched in mayo but the onions and pickles are delicious in this. Two thumbs WAY up in my book. I even walked out with a weeks worth of munchies for about 30 bucks.

If you're in the area you MUST check out this new Whole Foods (and if you happen to be in town on a sunday, their sunday brunch comes with 25 CENT mimosas until noon!)

I'm also a fan of the WF veg chicken salad. That pie looks awesome!

Is this a vegan chicken salad? I know regular mayo is not vegan. I think there is vegan mayo. I have not looked into it because I never really cared for mayo. Your site is set up nice. I am a new vegan and started a blog to teach others how to be vegan as I learn.

thanks for sharing.

I shop Whole Foods and I'm amazed at their selections of prepared foods vegan entrees. I travel a lot and I can always get brown rice, a bean, and a vegetable ... and usually (depending on the location) a vegan soup. Sure makes traveling easier. Great "fast food"!

I can actually make my mouth water on command just thinking of Vegan Chicken Salad. The first time I had it I kept looking at the packaging and was totally convinced that I was somehow confusing what the word Vegan meant!
