Rich, creamy, and flavorful, this Vegan “Egg” Salad Sandwich recipe will blow your mind with deliciousness and its signature, but unusual ingredient: potatoes.


  • 2 ½ to 3 ½ cups boiled and refrigerated potatoes, petite diced *

Blender Ingredients:

  • ½ cup (raw) cashews
  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard (+/-) *
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon hot sauce *
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ½ to ¾ teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped bread and butter pickles
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onions
  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery ribs
  • Fresh dill

  • Toast (or wrap)

  1. Place the cashews into a small bowl, cover with boiling water and allow to sit for 15 minutes, then drain off and discard the water.
  2. Place the soaked cashews into a high-speed blender along with all the remaining Blender Ingredients. Blend until smooth and emulsified. Place in a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, dice the boiled and refrigerated (peeled) potatoes into very tiny cubes, think the size and thickness of an egg slicer. Refrigerate until ready to mix.
  4. After the sauce has been in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then fold in the tiny-diced potatoes, finely chopped bread & butter pickles (and any other optional ingredients (diced onions, diced celery, black salt, etc.).
