The Big Taco Salad Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes


cilantro cream dressing (makes 1 cup)

1 C raw cashews, soaked for 20 minutes in hot water

1/4 C unsweetened nondairy milk

1/4 C packed fresh cilantro

1 lime, zest and juice

1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

taco salad

8 C romaine lettuce, roughly chopped

1/2  C finely chopped red onion

2 C red cabbage

1/2  C frozen corn, thawed and drained

1/2  C canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1 C cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 avocado, peeled and diced

for serving

organic corn chips



1To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a high-powered blender until very smooth and creamy. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2Toss chopped romaine in a mixing bowl with the red onion and a 1/2 cup of dressing. Put your dressed lettuce into your serving dishes and add the red cabbage, tomatoes, and avocado on top.

3I like combining the corn and black beans together. I add that to the top of the salad. Drizzle with more cilantro cream dressing, if desired. The dressing will keep for 5 days in the fridge. Serve with corn chips and salsa on the side, or you could crumble the chips onto the salad and dollop with salsa. Do the big taco salad however you want!
