Have you seen my recipe for, or made panir cheese, and wondered what you can make with it? Well, today I am excited to share with you, one of my recipes that use panir cheese. Vegetarian chicken salad sandwich! As an added benefit, it’s organic. Which, if you’ve been following along, you’ll know is important to us. You can even use my homemade mayonnaise with this recipe. I shared how to make that with you last week!
Why a Vegetarian Chicken Salad When I am a Meat Eater, You ask…
I came up with this recipe because I wanted a chicken salad sandwich one day and I didn’t have any organic chicken. So, I decided to experiment and see what panir cheese would taste like in place of chicken in chicken salad. It turned out great! A vegetarian chicken salad sandwich! I actually found some organic chicken and made some chicken salad sandwiches with it the other day. I didn’t like it as much as I like this. Crazy, huh?!
This panir vegetarian chicken salad is a cross between chicken salad and egg salad. You can eat it by itself or you can make sandwiches out of it. It is delicious both ways. I usually end up eating quite a bit of it before I finish making the sandwiches, so you may want to make a little extra for this very purpose
Versatility in Action!
When I make sandwiches, I like to add fresh alfalfa sprouts. Sprouts are actually a good addition to many things: smoothies, pizza, eggs, etc. Here is a blog my husband wrote on growing your own sprouts if you’d like to learn how. To make the perfect sandwich, fresh homemade bread is amazing. You can find my recipe here.
This is such a fun recipe to make. You can add whatever sounds good to you. I have added pickles, cranberries, celery, onions, raisins, and grapes to it. You can even add nuts, such as cashews or pecans. Perhaps add some diced apples or fresh herbs. It’s all about what you like or what you are in the mood for. This recipe pretty much changes every time I make it. It’s that versatile!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and have fun coming up with new stir in ideas, and find the perfect combinations to satisfy your taste buds!
