You know what makes a fabulous vegetarian dish even better? Some bacon! You know it as well as I do – bacon is pure goodness on a plate, and the crispy, salty flavor just makes the other ingredients in this healthy salad pop.

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, then drain off any excess water.
  2. Combine cooked quinoa with beans and vegetables and stir gently. Add desired amount of dressing and mix well, then toss in crumbled bacon and serve.
  3. If salad won’t be served right away, omit bacon until you are ready to serve the salad so it won’t lose its crunch.
