Recipe Difficulty: Easy
Who doesn't love a good Taco Salad? I love this recipe because it is full of flavour, but also good for you ingredients. There are plenty of Taco salads out there with tons of sour cream, cheese, & meat. Of course those aren't going to taste bad, but why not have something super flavourful AND good for your body. Sure this has corn chips, but I'm Ok with that. I often buy multigrain, or a quality organic brand, and as far as including a couple handfuls in my dinner goes, I think it evens out when you're loading in the vegetables and whole grains.
This Taco Salad also has fresh salsa, black beans, corn, quinoa, avocado, fresh mint & cilantro. Then it all gets dressed with a simple cumin lime vinaigrette. I also like to garnish this with pickled jalapeno peppers, a drizzle of coconut yogurt and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
Ingredients for salad (for about 4 servings):
I chose to mix the ingredients with the vinaigrette separately and layer them onto my plate, but it's not necessary.
Smoked Paprika can be expensive in stores, this is the exact one I buy for my home as I use it in a lot of recipes and it is the most affordable way to purchase it.
