The “traditional” taco salad we usually find in American restaurants isn’t really traditional at all. Fresh flavors like radishes, tomatoes and avocados go with rice and black beans for a lighter version of the fried tortilla bowl we’ve all seen (and probably eaten). And if you’re serious about fresh flavours, top yours with our Watercress Salsa for a kick that’s from greens and not just peppers.
