Today I’ve got a great quinoa taco salad to share with you.
Tacos have always been a big deal at my house. Back in the day – and before I was a vegetarian – every Thursday night was taco night with survivor and Friends. Oh, how I miss Friends. I was not an early adapter but caught on a few years in when it seems that everything going on was mimicking what was going on in my life. Although I don’t watch TV much anymore, I do get Cougar Town from iTunes just to keep up with my laughs. Anyways…. back to quinoa…..
This is not a traditional taco salad as you can see. But it is a very tasty one. Inspired by the Gluten Free Goddess, I’ve paired quinoa with red onions, mango and avocado. The blend is perfect and you won’t be missing your traditional tacos a bit!
The original recipe called for corn, which I think would be good too. Especially now that you can get really good fresh corn at the grocery store. The day I made this, I was in the mood for something sweet, so the mango was just perfect. This is a great recipe to play around with so feel free to experiment!
