Taco Salad Days
Looking for a fresh idea for a summer picnic or backyard get-together? This cool and breezy quinoa taco salad might be just what you’re craving. Laced with lime juice and sea salt, the combo of fluffy quinoa and ripe avocado, spiked with red onion and sunny sweet pepper, served on a crisp bed of romaine lettuce, is a light and healthy twist on the salsa drenched bean and cheese heavy taco salads so ubiquitous years ago.
It’s a total win for gluten-free vegans and vegetarians.
And let’s face it.
Quinoa is much more hip than canned re-fried beans.
And this particular quinoa taco salad boasts FODMAPs-friendly dairy-free vegan ingredients.
Quinoa is a complete vegetarian protein, so you really don’t need the black beans (as a complementary protein)— unless, of course, you’re fond of those fiber rich little beauties in your quinoa salad. And if you do? Legume away dude.
Dairy lover? You can add your favorite shredded cheese or goat cheese, if you desire.
