I made this for about 40 people, along with a chicken with a sauce. People LOVED it... very easy. I did add feta cheese to up the game a bit... but that made it non-vegan. Still, easy and yummy.

This was a big hit at a cookout and it was nice not to have to worry about a mayo dish sitting out. I make this with brown rice and add extra green onions. It is good with the almonds toasted or not toasted.
