Taco Salad

Tacotuesday – I LOVE the idea of a theme. This can help take some of the pressure or thinking out of what you will make for a family dinner. This prevents you from becoming a short-order cook. This week we went with a Mexican salad….which could even work for meat less monday ! The corn, peppers, pickled onions and cheese give this dish the taste of taco . The tofu adds in some extra plant based protein. Give this one a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy this eatthe rainbow !



Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 1/2 medium red onion (or use 1/3 cup pickled onions)
