  • 1 iceberg lettuce (or cos/romaine or any other crisp lettuce)
  • Fry's chicken strips or a smoked tofu like Taifun's
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup eggless mayo (I use Plamil)
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp caper paste
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • tortilla chips
  • Step 1 In a blender blitz the pine nuts and garlic into a paste (alternatively you can mince the garlic and leave the pine nuts whole).
  • Step 2 Mix together the mayo, mustard, caper paste, nutritional yeast and lemon juice then add the pine nut mixture.
  • Step 3 Cook the strips per the instructions, whilst this is cooking chop the lettuce.
  • Step 4 Once the ‘chicken’ is cooked add to the lettuce and toss in the dressing.
  • Step 5 Instead of the traditional croutons, crush the tortilla chips into smaller pieces and sprinkle over the top. They are also pretty tasty once a bit soggy from the dressing so feel free to mix them into the salad also.

  • Hi! So sorry for the delay, I’ve been travelling and I’m super behind on emails and my blog reading. Great idea to add Fry’s chicken strips to this! I often add grilled tofu, but this is a nice and easy idea.
