Mexican Quinoa Salad

Mexican Quinoa Salad

From the Page

So when we got back from our respective trips last week, the first thing I added to our meal plan was a big Mexican salad.So healthy, filling and fresh – just what we both needed.We have a pretty standard taco salad we like to eat that includes black beans, guacamole, greens, tomato, onion, lime juice and salsa. But sometimes it’s good to switch things up.This 30-minute salad starts with a bed of leafy greens and is topped with super foods like quinoa, black beans and avocado. I think this would please vegans and non-vegans alike, and leftovers make a great lunch for the next day.Although it’s delicious as is, I would highly recommend crushing up some tortilla chips and putting them on top for extra crunch. I mean, come on – live a little.We hope you love this salad! We’d love to see what you come up with.

Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added more hot sauce, orange juice and salt. TIP: if you prefer a vinaigrette, leave out the avocado and simply whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.Either plate salad and serve with dressing on the side, or toss with dressing before serving. That dressing sounds like perfection to me!Reply Liz @ I Heart Vegetables says March 3, 2015 at 4:23 am It’s like all my favorite things in one bowl! It looks awesome (and still healthy!)Reply Anna Craig says March 3, 2015 at 4:51 am That dressing sounds (and looks) really good! I’ve never made my own dressing before.
