Really great bright flavors from the cilantro-lime vinaigrette that balances well with the kick of your taco seasoning (mine was homemade and spicy). I used 2 cups cooked lentils instead of the Smart Ground; it turned out really well. Satisfied my taco/Mexican/Tex-Mex cravings while living abroad in Belgium. Easy, healthy, satisfying meal.
Taco Salad with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette
An ice-cold beer is all you need to complete the meal with this main-dish salad that's topped with a zesty cilantro-lime dressing. The mushrooms add meaty texture and flavor. Try rolling up the salad mixture in iceberg lettuce leaves for a quick-and-easy variation.
Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 5 minutes
