With so many incredible (dare we say superior) chicken and mayo alternatives on the market, this take on the classic Waldorf salad adds a key component that was missing from the original–a healthy dose of compassion. With a delectable mix of sweetness, creaminess, and crunch, we’re sure it won’t just be the animals that are happy with this recipe on the table; your diners will be, too.


1/2 cup Vegenaise (more if you prefer)

1 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce

Sea salt and ground black pepper

3 cups diced Beyond Meat Chicken Grilled Strips, brought to room temperature

1 cup halved seedless red grapes

1 cup finely sliced celery

3/4 cup chopped pecans

1/2 small red onion, finely chopped

Pitas, lettuce, and avocado, optional


In a large bowl, whisk together the Vegenaise, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the Beyond Meat, grapes, celery, pecans, and onion and toss until evenly coated and combined.

Serve on pitas with lettuce and avocado, if desired.

YIELD: 6 Servings
