This thread is kinda old but I just happened upon it so I'll respond
I have an excellent recipe for a mock-chicken salad using tempeh. Basically you just boil the tempeh and then add like mayo (or soy mayo if you're vegan), mustard, chopped pickle, onions and the like.
If you're vegan, have you ever read the "How It All Vegan" series of cookbooks? They were like a bible to me when I was vegan. You might wanna check em out.
