Taco Salad

Pictured is the vegetarian version but all you have to do is add cooked ground beef or roasted or grilled chicken strips and you have a full meal.  

This one was made with walnuts I chopped in a food processor with some cumin and chili powder for flavor.  I sprinkled the walnuts over a bed of Romaine lettuce, roasted corn, avocado, tomato and you can add cheese to it, too.  It is fabulous with salsa on top.  I have also known people to use Green Goddess or Catalina dressings, too.  My favorite is a homemade Buttermilk dressing with a little salsa mixed in and we call it Mexicali Dressing.  It works for me!  

With Cinco de Mayo on it's way this is a perfect light supper with which to celebrate.

Two other versions I have done...

The raw version

and a version with a mix of different lettuces and meat added
