Taco Salad (non dairy!)

I get asked all the time what I eat and my answer is, I eat a lot of Asian inspired and Mexican inspired meals, because they contain a ton of vegetables and don’t require dairy products! A non-dairy taco salad is possible and so tasty that you won’t even miss the cheese and sour cream, I promise. So here we go…

It’s summer so I used garden lettuce, I made a salad dressing from scratch using avocado, lime, & cilantro, and I made a black bean and corn salsa for kicks and giggles.

Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing

1 avocado

1 cup cilantro

1 lime juiced

1/4 cup water, or more until desired consistency

Blend until smooth

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

1 can black beans, drained and strained

2 ears sweet corn, grilled and cut off

Onion to taste

Spicy pepper, such as jalapeno, serrano, etc, to taste

Drizzle with olive oil and fresh lime juice
