For this salad, there are two vital ingredients that make it oh-so-wonderful. First is one of the new zesty bars by That’s It that I recently posted about. These wholesome bars are usually just 2 ingredients (100% dried fruit: apple + another fruit). The new That’s it. Zesty. bars come in three different flavors, and I decided to use the apple + mango + chili one for this recipe. The chili is phenomenal.

The second vital ingredient that I’m loving lately is a soy chicken alternative. I’ve tried a few now, and I prefer the Beyond Meat brand over Gardein and other brands found in the freezer section. For this recipe, I used the homestyle tenders, but for a gluten-free chili mango salad, I highly recommend the lightly seasoned strips! Both great options!

The combination of these flavorful, fruity ingredients combined makes for a unique, delicious, wholesome meal. This salad is vegan, gluten free, and perfect for a quick meal when you’re a busy little bee!
