Healthy Vegetarian Taco Salad

Healthy Taco Salad- this salad is super flavourful and full of fresh veggies! Vegan friendly :) | The Refreshanista

This is the thirdย year in a row I’ve made Taco Salad during the first week back at school ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s just so easy to throw together, even in a small dorm room. And it’s full of flavour and a variety of veggies!

I’ve packed this salad up in mason jars before for a quick grab-and-go lunch. Just pour your dressing in the bottom of the jar and add the veggies in from hardest to softest ie. starting with beans and ending with lettuce. Store in the fridge until you’re heading out the door. Don’t forget to pack a fork! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m not a huge salad fan in general but if it’s got lots of different veggies, other than lettuce, and a great creamy dressing then I loooove it ๐Ÿ™‚

This salad really resonates with me for several reasons:

  1. it’s Mexican-flavoured.
  2. there are 6 different veggies plus black beans and cilantro. Hello, variety!
  3. the dressing is creamy and delicious.
  4. it’s eeeeeasy.

This salad is really filling so you can definitely make it a whole meal but it would also be delicious as a side-dish for Mexican Night alongside fajitas or enchiladas ๐Ÿ™‚
