Day 8- Garden Vegetable Salad with Quinoa and Wildrice

It’s day 8 y’all and today we have a hearty and ohhhh so tasty vegan salad.

We post this salad a couple months ago and because it got so much love we wanted to include it into our 10 easy vegan lunches. We think of this salad as  a hungry man’s or woman’s salad, because its filling, includes a good dose of protein and carbs!

Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
