Growing up my mom used to make me lunch every day to take to school. Looking back, I didn’t realize how lucky I was but that’s besides the point. In high school I finally convinced her to let me buy lunch a few days a week and there is NOTHING that I’d look forward to more, than the days when the cafeteria would have taco salads. I would load mine up with literally a cup of shredded cheese, a few vegetables and all the ranch dressing I wanted. It came in a fried tortilla shell so I’d power down what was probably 12423423 million calories in a few minutes and then get back to socializing with friends. I miss the days when calories didn’t count and my metabolism was only 17 years old.

ANYWAYS… fast forward to today. I still love a taco salad, but you know I like to put my California spin on things. I’ve ditched the fried tortilla shell because I said goodbye to my teenage metabolism long ago, and replaces from of the ingredients with healthier options! Case in point – my cilantro vinaigrette! You’ll love this one! And you could even add in some shredded chicken or cooked ground taco meat if you want extra protein!! Have at it!
