Taco Salad

This recipe is really easy!

the peppers and onions should be sauteed until soft

We tried to add avocado but the one we had just wasn’t ripe enough 😦 I topped this with a salsa ranch dressing we had in the fridge but you can have it with sour cream, guacamole, or any other dressing you like. Simple, but good.

Seared Tuna Salad

Tonight we made seared tuna salads. We experimented with four different types of rubs/marinades for the tuna steaks. These included soy sauce, crushed black pepper and garlic powder, old bay and mexican chili. They were all delicious in their own right and it was fun to get different flavors with each bite.

In terms of what salad dressing to use, I must reccomend the ginger miso dressing by Genji. I don’t know if it’s sold everywhere, but I have found it at Whole Foods in Silver Spring and Rockville. It is SOOOO good.
