Lately I’ve been loving adding fresh fresh citrus to my meals while it’s in season! Last week I added a gorgeous blood orange to my basic vegan taco salad mix with fresh herbs and pumpkin seeds for a twist on Taco Tuesday. I found with all the toppings, this bowl didn’t really need dressing. A little almond milk yogurt would be great here, too, or a drizzle of tahini! Try adding cooked quinoa for extra protein if you like. I love mine with extra salad and avocado! This vegan taco salad is perfect to throw together for easy workweek lunches.
