This Vegetarian Taco Salad is an amazing way to load up on veggies with all the flavor and crunch of your favorite tacos!
You can add your beans straight up like I did, or first warm the beans with a spoonful or so of taco seasoning for even more flavor! Both methods are marvelous.
Chop all your veggies up super small for a little bit of goodness in every bite. Finely chop romaine lettuce, bell pepper, and tomatoes, and thinly chop/slice green onion. Jalapeño can be thinly siced (spicy!) or seeded and chopped for a milder kick. Combine with black beans, corn, crushed tortilla chips, and grated cheese. Toss to mix.
For a little dressing in every bite, toss salad in a few tablespoons of dressing and mix to coat right before serving. Serve with extra toppings/dressing on the size for a custom salad.
Love veggies? Us too! Feel free to add extra vegetables or mix-ins to this salad and rock your plate! Enjoy!
