Quinoa Mango Healthy Taco Salad

Quinoa Mango Taco Salad

You get everything in this salad: texture, sweet, salty, fresh, bitter, and spicy – and it takes only a minute or two to prepare, if you have leftover quinoa on hand! If you’re missing one or two ingredients – try it anyway – you may discover a new favorite variation!

Quinoa Mango Taco Salad

2-3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 cup cooked quinoa (feel free to substitute freekeh or other grain if you have it on hand)
1/4 cup black beans (cooked and drained, or canned and drained)
1/4 cup chopped organic mango (fresh preferred, or frozen is fine)
1 fresh tomato, diced
1 green onion, sliced on the bias
10 organic blue corn chips, crushed
1/2 organic avocado, diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh salsa

To assemble:
In serving bowl, place romaine lettuce on the base, then add strips of quinoa, beans, onion, mango, tomato, cilantro, chips, avocado, and salsa.

Please resist the urge to add “salad dressing” – this does not need additional flavors, it just adds calories and masks the beautiful fresh flavors.
