Taco Salad

I made the Ranch Dressing (my last post) to use on my "clean out the frig" Taco Salad. I didn't get a pic of the ingredients that went into this salad because I wasn't sure what was going in. I usually clean out the frig on Saturday morning. I knew there was some  good things in there that could be turned into this salad:  taco meat mixed with refried black beans, an avocado, an ear of corn that had been grilled, etc. Here is what those humble leftovers transformed into - Taco Salad 
  • Chopped Romaine for two large salads
  • Taco meat mixed with refried black beans
  • corn sliced off the cob (1/2 ear per salad)
  • 1 avocado, chopped (1/2 per salad)
  • 1 tomato, chopped (1/2 per salad)
  • 10 black olives, halved (5 olives per salad)
  • Daiya cheddar shreds
  • Tostido chips for crunch
  • Salsa
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds, etc
Put lettuce on the plates:

Top with taco meat/refried bean combo

Add corn that has been cut off the cob

Add the chopped avocado

Next comes the chopped tomato

Then the black olives

I top all of this Daiya shreds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, salsa and the ranch dressing. (I bet pickled jalapeno slices would have been a good addition.) Use your imagination. Finally add some crunch by using some type of tortilla chips or corn chips.
