Apple and dates give the salad a welcome sweetness.

Toasted coconut and cashews add nutty flavor.

Pretty much toss everything together in a bowl with Vegenaise or vegan mayo. Or feel free to use regular old mayo– up to you!

Here I’m using vegan mayo that I made a few days ago with silken tofu. Do as you please. 🙂

Then just mix it all up!

  1. I’ve just made this – I don’t think it’ll make it to the dinner table, it’s so delicious – and I haven’t even added the toasted coconut and cashews yet!!!

  2. My my my. This is AWESOME. I wasn’t a curry fan but maybe now I am. (I used Thai Yellow Curry). 1-left out coconut, 2-used white beans (preference), and 3-used regular Mayo. WOW! I felt healthy and also glutinous! Hubby added chicken covered w/the curry mayo. Thank you!!! I want more tomorrow!!

    1. I’m not sure the texture / flavor would be the same. You can of course try it.. perhaps add a little olive oil, salt, and more sweetness. Yogurt is quite tart.

  3. Delicious. I usually don’t go for sweetness but the balance of flavors and texture is perfect. Love that this is portable and healthy. I subbed currants for some dates, added some curry and paprika. I didn’t have orange zest (used it all in the delicious granola recipe!). Will make again.

  4. I made this today & couldn’t believe how good it was! I pretty much followed the recipe except used raisins instead of dates & left out the maple syrup. It is so good. Will definitely make again. Thanks for all the great recipes.

  5. This is such a delicious salad packed full of flavour, crunch and softness Sylvia. My husband and son loved it. I halved the amount of dates as we don’t go for a lot of sweetness and 4 were plenty. We didn’t use the orange zest and was still a knock out meal. Thank you! Love all your recipes all the way around the world in Sydney.

  6. Our family loves this dish, lots of chopping it such a flavorful outcome! We skipped the cashews and coconut and these still turned out amazing! The orange zest is key!! I also use less dates maybe only 3.

  7. This is one of my favorite recipes. Thank you! I love how the textures and flavors all complement each other – crunchy, sweet, rich, and warming. It’s perfect for a breezy, winter PNW day or summer picnic.

  8. This is such a yummy recipe! I make it regularly and bring it to work for lunch. Last time I gave my coworker a taste and she was blown away!
    Only thing I change is I use about half the amount of dates.
    Thank you for another great recipe!

  9. Delicious! I used gluten free flour and pumpkin pie spice. The ground ginger gave it a unique twist to your typical ginger bread.
