  • Very Good
    I used green bell peppers instead of onion and celery as I don't like them. It came out very good. I packed it for lunch in a sandwich thin. Very tasty and satisfying :) - 1/22/13

    I did not have all the ingredients, so made do with onion, celery, tempeh, vegan mayo and seasonings. That was enough. Who knew that tempeh could make such a great cold salad. Thanks so much for posting this for us all. - 12/17/11

    Quick, easy and yummy! I had this for lunch 2 days in a row now in a whole wheat tortilla. Really filling and satisfying. - 6/23/11

    Love this! Easy to make and great to have on hand for packing lunches! I didn't have any celery so I subbed some chopped water chestnuts, and added a chopped hot pepper for extra kick. I like the idea of adding grapes (mentioned in other reviews); I'll have to give it a try! - 7/26/10
