Dellzville Dives Headfirst Into Plant-Based Seafood

Dellzville | Charleston, South Carolina

VEDGEco Planted Chef Challenge ft. Good Catch® Plant-Based Tuna
Dell-licious Tuna Salad

Dellzville, previously known as Dell’z, is a restaurant located in Charleston, SC and is an absolute must-stop for plant-based eaters and omnivore eaters alike. With a plant-forward menu, we were absolutely ecstatic when they joined our VEDGEco Planted Chef Challenge: Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna Edition! Working with the owner, Michael Bonds, we provided Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna and he created one of the greatest dishes of all time -- the Dell-licious Tuna Salad!

The Dell-licious Tuna Salad is packed with our favorite fresh ingredients, and our favorite seafood alternatives including plant-based tuna salad made with Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna Flakes, air-fried vegan shrimp, quinoa, crispy onions, bell peppers, and thyme. 

VEDGEco is so grateful to work with plant-forward chefs like Michael, and we’ve been lucky enough to receive his insight on choosing to participate in the Planted Chef Challenge, his experience with the plant-based movement, and why Dellzville offers plant-based options to their customers!
