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!
MEATLESS TACO SALADWhat's your favourite at-home lunch?
- 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
Combine and enjoy.
- 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.
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.
