Vegan TuNO Salad Sandwich

Vegan TuNO Salad Sandwich

Do you remember having tuna salad sandwiches when you were a child? Ok so maybe not everyone did, but it was a definite staple in my house. I wish my mom knew back then what I know now. She was extremely health conscious but she definitely didn’t understand our reality like some of us do now. I’m talking before 1998. She used to make me drink Carrot Juice from whichever juicer she had back in the day. I used to cringe. Anytime I was sick she said “chug it.”  That was so traumatizing to me as a young child bc I HATED carrot juice! Now all these years later, I remind myself of my mother. It’s not a bad thing but I’ve become even more aware and conscious about what my family and I consume.

So I love to veganize almost any dish I would eat before but love the fact I can make it cruelty-free. If you feel the same you should most definitely attempt this easy Vegan TuNO Salad Sandwich using my homemade Vegan Mayonnaise. It’s so simple and quick to make. Perfect for lunch during the busy weekday afternoons!


To start, you’ll need to drain and rinse your Chickpeas well. Then add the Chickpeas to a food processor. You want it kind of chunky or more so flakey.

Then transfer the flaked Chickpeas into a mixing bowl.

In the mixing bowl with flaked Chickpeas add in the vegan mayonnaise, nutritional yeast, green onions, nori sheet flakes, liquid aminos, sea salt and pepper.

Fold everything together and mix it well. Everything should be distributed evenly throughout. Now just set it aside.

Now, toss in your celery and dill pickles. Pulse them until very it’s diced very small but still kind of chunky. You don’t want mashed celery and pickles.

Once everything is mixed together well, cover the bowl and set in the refrigerator to chill at  least 30 minutes.

Then remove it to assemble your sandwich. Start with toasting your bread. Then spread on some TuNO Salad, then romaine leaves and tomato slices on top and top with another slice of sprouted grain bread. Serve with some kettle chips and more dill pickles and Enjoy!
