Mmmm. Salad Taco.
What is a Salad Taco?
In short, it’s the easiest way to re-purpose a salad you have in your fridge and make it taste like something completely new!
You can use virtually any salad that you need to use up, or maybe one that you’re just sick of! :P
Easy Steps to Make a Salad Taco
- Warm up (and brown) corn tortillas or even whole wheat tortillas in a pan over medium heat
- Add you favorite sauces like hummus, guacamole, salad dressing or even salsa or tomato sauce
- Add a large spoonful or two of the salad onto the taco
- Add crunchy or flavorful items to the top, like onion, carrots or even herbs like mint or rosemary to really give it a kick

What’s the Weight Loss Salad?
The Weight Loss Salad is a salad that I make a lot, that has a ton of ingredients, is super hearty, and is one of those amazing nutritarian foods where the more you eat of it, the more weight you lose.
Why is this?
Well, the ingredients are all plant-based and there is a very minimal type dressing used. It means that it has a TON of flavor, but not a ton of calories. Since it’s a very dense salad, you can eat a ton of it (think: 4-5 cups at a time), get totally full and not have had a lot of calories.
This is the basic concept of being a Nutritarian (what this website is all about) in that, you can typically eat as much of these foods as you like and still remain at a great weight — or even lose weight!
My new favorite summer salad is cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet onion, black olives and hard cheese topped with an oil and vinegar dressing. Quick, easy and always fresh.
Now THAT sounds amazing Kris! Love it. Thank you for sharing the idea!!
OMG! The weight loss salad looks scrumptious!
Loretta thank you for commenting m’dear! It’s SOOOO good!! :D Lemme know whatcha think once you’ve had it… <3
I have become addicted without ever tasting the Mexican Salad you ate as I watched for hours on your 20+ YouTube Blog. Any chance I can find it?
Thanks so much-
Hahaha hi Amy!!! Sorry to do that to you!! :P So yes I’ve spoken about it on a FAcebook Live event I did, though I haven’t put it up formally on the site yet. But you can get good info on it in that post: “How Big Should Your Salad Be?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVFHfhMSZ4M The original recipe is found in Furhman’s 10 in 20 Meal Plan, but the YT video shows I personally make it. :D <3
Thanks Cheri- BTW, I just ordered the Organic Matcha tea from you……..excited!
