Taco salad is one of my favorite healthy, family-friendly meals. I start with lettuce, beans, and tortilla chips, and I add a variety of vegetables along with salsa vinaigrette. If your children are particular about their vegetables, you can easily make the base salad and everyone can add in the vegetables they like.
This is a delicious no-cook meal for a warm summer night. It’s a great way to use up leftovers from taco night.
