Dig into all the flavors of tacos in this vibrant, fragrant and delicious salad! This Taco Salad is the perfect choice if you like your salads to be hearty and satisfying. Make it for yourself and enjoy the leftovers the next day or serve it up to the whole family for lunch or dinner. 

Romaine is a fantastic leafy green that is high in omega-3, calcium, iron and vitamin C. It's high silicon content helps to repair and renew joints, bones, arteries, and connective tissues. Romaine lettuce has antispasmodic properties that aid the cardiovascular system and the digestive tract. It also contains sedative compounds that relax the nerves and calm the body.

Avocado is easily digested and contains over 25 essential nutrients including iron, magnesium, and essential fatty acids that help the body to function optimally. Avocados increase the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients, so they are a wonderful addition to green leafy salads to ensure proper absorption of all the vitamins and minerals. 

Taco Salad 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 cup diced red peppers
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro 
  • 1 tsp olive oil (optional)
  • 1 cup cooked black beans (drain and rinse if from a can)
