Vegan Buffalo Wing Salad
Tangy Spicy Tangy!
I called them Chick-Quin.
A plant based chicken made from chickpeas and quinoa.
Super easy, pretty quick, and extra crispy crunchy if you have an air fryer. If you do not, these are still fabulous baked in the oven, the way I did for the five years before I had the wonder that is an air fryer.
If you are a fan of my salad recipes, you may have noticed that I love a crisp cool salad with a warm protein on top.
This Vegan Buffalo Wing Salad is one of my favorites. Warm spicy buffalo wings, crunchy romaine, kale, and celery, creamy avocado – all drizzled with Cool Celery Ranch Dressing.
I first made this Vegan Buffalo Wing Salad well before I ever set foot inside a Veggie Grill restaurant. Before we even had them in Portland, I am pretty sure.
Now though, I have been to Veggie Grill countless times, and aside from trying the new menu items each season, one of my favorite menu items continues to be the B Wing Salad.
I am also known to want to go sides of the B Wings with Ranch.
With a half piece of the carrot cake.
What? I share.
I still return most often to my homemade Buffalo Chick Quins, though. They are gluten free – which, whether I want to admit it or not, is better for me. It also means my celiac mom and my gluten intolerant husband can enjoy them too.
I am all about the tofu and all things soy, but in this case, my soy allergic friends can also enjoy these wings!
Wings for everyone – you get a wing, and YOU get a wing!
