Citrus Quinoa Cabbage Salad!

This is a delicious, colorful vegan feast! The purple cabbage with pop of orange from the citrus and carrots, and of course plenty of greens! The creamy sauce offset by all the tangy citrus is soooo good! Don’t forget that jalapeño for a spicy kick that makes ALL foods better 🙂 Plus, you get your protein from the whole grains, your healthy fats from the avocado and the creamy sauce, and a whole lotta colorful veggies packing in vitamins and nutrients!!
