I’ve been slowly working through my mission of finding the best faux meat free vegan options throughout Walt Disney World property. I’ve been finding more and more restaurants are making their vegan options just a burger, which is fine every once in a while, but when you’re on vacation you can only stomach so many of those. So I have been looking for and trying the non faux meat options to share with you guys!
One of those options can be found in Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Pizzafari. Pizzafari is located near Africa and Pandora. The vegan option here is the Greens and Grains Salad. This option is easy to find and order on the My Disney Experience app under Plant-based.
This dish comes with mixed greens tossed in a Green Goddess Dressing, and is topped with a mix of chickpeas, white beans, onion, kalamata olives, quinoa, and tomatoes. The menu says pepperoncini as well, though mine did not have that.
The top part of this salad was delicious. I loved the bean mix with the quinoa. I would happily eat that on its own. It had a nice tang to it and the texture of the beans with the quinoa was quite nice.
The mixed greens part of this salad was where I was lost. The salad was completely overdressed and made most of the greens soggy. Often times things are under dressed, so while I was happy to see so much dressing at first, while eating it I didn’t enjoy it as much.
I would get this salad again, but I would make a request for the dressing to be on the side for me. I think mixing up the bean salad on top of the greens with the dressing would be the best move for this. Overall I really enjoyed this, but could do without the soggy lettuce!
