I completely lost track of time today, something I almost always do on Mondays. Technically I have three days off, but Monday feels like my only real day off. So anyway, it’s 90+ degrees out again, I needed something fast to eat and preferably something that didn’t have to be cooked. Time for another salad.
The only thing that makes this like a taco salad is the crushed tortilla chips and the spices. I put the chips in the bowl first – this time I threw in some pistachios for a little extra somethin’ (protein, iron and a tiny bit of calcium).
On an oil-free day you could use the tahini sauce, but today I used olive oil, hot sauce, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika & nutritional yeast. Usually I would use a medium to large clove of garlic, minced, but this time I just used a sprinkling of garlic powder because I was on my way to voice lessons. I didn’t want to be rude. Although…
I did add plenty of onions. With romaine, tomatoes & green peppers.
Next, more lemon juice, olive oil, hot sauce. Mix it up, sprinkle with more salt or whatever other spices you want. Everything is to taste.
I will do an even more taco-like salad in the future. Oh – maybe for Worldwide Vegan Taco Day!!! August 4th.
