Quinoa Taco Salad Recipe

Quinoa Taco Salad Recipe

Ready in 45 minutes

My vegan quinoa taco salad is sans tomatoes. And bean-free. No customary black beans here. But if you love black beans with a white hot passion, add 'em in. You can also add crumbled goat cheese on top, if you desire.

"Made this for the family, everyone really really liked it. I STRONGLY recommend the goat cheese, really adds to it. I served with watermellon and grilled peaches for desert."
