Taco Salad

I made this salad to try something different. Because I made more protein than called for in the salad I was able to make a planover meal later in the week. I like two for one meals.


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • Smokey Southwestern seasoning
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, divided
  • 1 c cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 c cashew cream
  • 1/4 c favorite salsa
  • 2 tbsp lime gremolata, divided
  • cheddar cheese, optional
  • lime wedges, garnish
  • jalapeno,minced, optional

In a large skillet over medium heat warm olive oil. Add onion and garlic; cook until translucent. Sprinkle Smokey southwestern seasoning over onion mixture Add ground beef and brown. Add more seasoning and tomato. Cook another 10-15 minutes. Set aside

Halve romaine heart and roughly chop into bite size pieces. Place romaine on plates.

Mix together cashew cream and salsa. This will be your dressing.

Sprinkle taco meat on top of lettuce. Add cherry tomatoes, cheese, gremalata, jalapeƱo and dressing. Serve with a lime wedge. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
