Mostly Raw Vegan “Tuna” Salad

savethetuna

Faux tuna salad made from raw nuts? Whodathunkit? This was pretty awesome (and mercury free)! I think I liked it even better with nuts as the protein than with chickpeas!

This makes enough for 5-6 sandwiches.

1 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight
1 cup raw sunflower seeds, soaked overnight
2 celery stalks, very finely chopped (minced)
¼ cup red onion, very finely chopped (minced)
1 carrot, very finely chopped (minced)
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons kelp granules (this really helps give it a tuna taste)
1-2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
1/3 cup dill relish
¼ cup vegan mayo
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Drain the soaked almonds and sunflower seeds and place in a food processor. Process until very finely chopped. Pour into a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and serve!

Serve with lettuce and tomato slices on whole grain bread as a sandwich, on a bed of lettuce with fruit as a salad, or with crackers as a snack. I imagine this would make a great tuna melt with the addition of some Daiya cheese!
