Faux Taco Salad Recipe - Who needs meat anyway?

I love taco salad.  And I love having salads for lunch.  But I don't cook lunch.  Lunch (and breakfast) at home with no guests should always only involve pulling things out of the fridge to assemble something quickly.  I have a hard enough time cooking supper every day, never mind lunch too!

So I wanted a way to get the taco salad flavour without having to fry up some ground beef.  I made this salad for lunch every possible day in the past month until I ran out of salad dressing.  Tuesday is the %15 off day at the grocery store, so I'll be stocking up!

  • Lettuce (choose your favourite variety.  I prefer romaine, but for the picture used a spring mix because that's what I had)
  • Grated Cheese
  • Your favourite Taco Toppings (like tomatoes, green onions, avocados, salsa, sour cream, etc)
  • Broken Tortilla Shells or Chips
  • Catalina Salad Dressing
  • And the secret ingredient, the one that makes it taste like tacos: Cumin!  As in the spice.  I usually sprinkle a pinch or two of it over the cheese.
Combine and enjoy.
What's your favourite at-home lunch?

PS: Anyone want to volunteer to be a recipe tester for my Girl-Who-Hates-To-Cook-Book?  To be released sometime this year...I think.
