Haystacks! What is a haystack you ask?  It is simply a build your own taco salad.  If you have ever spent anytime at all with Seventh-day Adventists you have probably had one before.  But as they say a picture is worth a 1000 words!

The great thing about haystacks is that you can serve them to a crowd without too much effort. Over the weekend we served these haystacks to 200 people at a Women of Faith Conference.  The cost was reasonable it was easy to prepare and everybody could choose what parts of the haystack they liked.  Here is what we had available.

  • corn chips or tortilla chips
  • brown rice
  • chili beans
  • Melty Cheeze Sauce (a cashew cheese)
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • black olives
  • onions
  • vegan ranch dressing
  • salsa

Layer as much or as little of each ingredient on plate as suits your taste!  Eat!
