Last post I was telling you about our recent fantastic salsa discovery, Trader Joe’s Roasted Tomato Salsa. We were taking a moment to check out all the yummy salsas that Trader Joe’s carries when we found that one. We were specifically looking for a salsa that would taste great on a Taco Salad.
That is what we usually do. We start out with the salad basics, add beans or a meat of some kind, and then start adding the optional ingredients to sort of round out the salad.
Some of the optional ingredients we add include: broken taco chips, black olives, green onions, grated cheese, cold leftover veggies or rice~ you can add whatever you like ~ that is the beauty of this kind of salad.
For this salad, we browned a package of Trader Joe’s ground turkey with a spoonful of Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning and used that as the point to build the rest of the salad.
We had lettuce, cherry tomatoes and an avocation to add some flavors as well. For a change we created Salsa Mayo by adding a scoop of Trader Joe’s Organic Mayonnaise to 2 scoops of our tasty new Roasted Tomato Salsa. We could have added it to some Sour Cream… but I forgot to purchase Sour Cream when we were shopping ….gr…
What is your favorite ingredient in Taco Salads?
