Full disclosure - I first bought some of the Beyond Meat vegan chicken-free strips about two months ago. I heated them up and used them in a pasta recipe. I wasn't impressed. I just didn't care for them. I don't know if it was the flavor I tried or the way I prepared them, but I hadn't planned on trying more.
Fast forward to this week and a friend gave me a coupon for a free pack of them. I figured I would try them again, a different flavor, since they were free. This time I got the chicken-free grilled variety. I decided to not heat them, instead turning them into a vegan chicken-free salad to use on sandwiches.
I put the whole package into the food processor, added in some onion, red pepper, and celery, and hit the chop key. Then I added in a little mustard, a teaspoon of relish, and some mayo. Mixed it all together and gave it a try. Yum! Fast and tasty!
We had sandwiches on a picnic with this and they were great. Everyone liked them. Now that I know this is so good I will be buying these again, even if this is the only way that I use them. They make a great vegan chicken-free salad!
