Lean and Green Fiesta Taco Salad 

May is National Salad Month… and the month to celebrate Mexican pride on Cinco de Mayo. So, here’s a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of Mexican cuisine, with plant-strong ingredients for better health, better learning, and a greener world! Cool Beans!

INGREDIENTS (for one large salad) 
2-3 cups romaine lettuce, chopped thin 
2 Tablespoons each: red bell pepper, red onion & cilantro, finely chopped 
1/2 cup cooked/canned pinto beans (or refried beans, vegetarian style w/out lard) 
1/2 medium avocado, sliced into 1/2 inch cubes 
1/4 cup corn (organic, non-GMO recommended) 
1/4 medium cucumber, chopped 
1 carrot, shredded 
1/4 cup (or so) chunky tomato salsa 
1 Tablespoon Italian vinaigrette, or cilantro lime dressing (optional) 
2 Corn Tortillas, or a handful corn tortilla chips (organic, non-GMO recommended)

1. Heat water for steaming tortillas. While water is heating up… 2. Layer vegetable ingredients on a plate, or toss them together in a bowl. 3. Steam tortillas over hot water - or for a quick alternative method, dampen tortillas with water and heat on oven rack at 350 degrees until soft. Cut into strips, add to salad. 4. Drizzle Italian vinaigrette, or perhaps a cilantro lime dressing if desired.
