Vegetarian Taco Salad

Week 2 Day 2 of BM #62 - 

This salad has become a hot favorite at home ever since I saw this at Pavani's space and made it the very next day. I made some minor changes to the original to suit our taste buds and pantry :).

I love this salad as it is a complete meal and the ingredients are totally customizable so is the spice level. It can be put together in a jiffy. Canned beans come in very handy here. Though I prefer the home cooked beans. So plan ahead to make this delightful salad.
