SCD Taco Salad with Creamy Avacado Dressing
This is a very filling salad, looks beautiful and travels well, what more could you ask for?
SCD Taco Salad
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
salt and pepper
1 small can tomato sauce or tomato juice (check label for added sugar)
1/4 tsp. Tabasco
1 T. taco seasoning (I order mine from San Francisco Herb, no fillers or sugar added)
SCD Black Beans
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped tomato, onion, bell pepper, and olives
Yo cheese and salsa or dressing for garnish
Brown ground beef with garlic and salt and pepper, stirring to break up large pieces. When it is all browned drain well. Add tomato sauce or juice, seasoning, and Tabasco. Simmer 15 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed.
Arrange salad in a large bowl, you can mix everything together or serve everything separately and your guests can put together their own salad. Top with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Creamy Avacado Dressing or Dip
3 T. SCD yogurt
3 shakes tabasco
1-2 T. honey
Combine all ingredients in a small food processor or mix together with an immersion blender. This makes a very creamy and rich dressing or dip.
