Raw Taco Salad

So here’s another quick and easy recipe for my “Mason” jar series. I decided to combine healthy produce together to create a raw salad. I used ingredients you would find in a taco; but without the meat. This salad can be stored in your fridge for a few days. I love to eat this as is, but I also use it to dress up other simple meals. I tend to use kale and spinach in all of my salads, but choose which ever greens you love most.

You will need:
Kale
Spinach
cilantro
half of a lemon
corn
green onions
1-2 tomatoes
1/2 mango
1/4 jalepeno
yellow onion
bell pepper (I used yellow)
1/2 avocado
ground black pepper
*since it is a salad, you can add as much of each ingredient as you like! There’s no wrong way in this recipe 🙂

Its best to put the juice (or your dressing of choice) on the bottom. Here I used lemons and black pepper.

Add all the heavier, firmer ingredients first. Then add the more delicate, fragile ones last (the spinach, kale, and cilantro)

You can enjoy this raw salad as is, but for those seeking to add more protein; here is an example of how I used this salad to dress up a boring egg and turkey wrap:

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be bland. “Mason” jars really help bring out your creative side and at the same time you are helping the environment by recycling these jars. This jar came from a pasta sauce I bought from Whole Foods a few months ago 🙂 There are endless possibilities. I can’t wait to post more “mason” jar recipes.

Replace your boring meals with a fun, nutrient rich healthy meal. Your heart and health with thank you later ❤ cheers to a happier and healthier lifestyle!
