Cook the vegan bacon in a skillet with a little oil or cooking oil spray — just enough to coat the pan — until lightly browned on both sides. Or, prepare the Baconut recipe as directed. Turn off the heat and cover until needed.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a salad bowl and mix until the vegetables are evenly coated with the vegan mayo.
When ready to serve, chop the vegan bacon into ½-inch pieces and stir into the salad. Or, if you made Baconut, stir it in. Either way, serve at once.
