Beef Taco Salad

Nothing says easy like a beef taco or regular taco salad… But taco salads at restaurants can harbor soybean oil, beans, rice, tortilla chips or my favorite – the huge tortilla bowl.

Beef taco salads can easily be made at home with super fresh ingredients, and taste amazing!

The secret to a good taco or taco salad is the taco seasoning… This taco seasoning has chipotle, salt, garlic powder, cumin and some cayenne pepper for kick!

Sardine Boats

Sardinesimage have excellent health benefits and are tasty as well. I know, when I first heard about sardines, I was hesitant to try them. But time and time again, I read about the anti-inflammatory properties of sardines, as well as, the high omega-3, which is great from everything to skin health to preventing cancer. Honestly, if you like canned tuna fish (but maybe find it a little dry), this oily fish is a great alternative.

Some things about buying sardines:

  1. Make sure that they are skinless and boneless. There are still a few tiny, tiny bones, but they just make the fish a little crunchy. The ones that still have the skin and full bones still scare me a little bit (especially to eat!).
  2. Buy sardines that are packed in oil. The ones that I usually buy are in olive oil. Yes, they are an oily fish, but the ones packed in water just don’t taste as good.

So, this really isn’t a cooking recipe as a great snack or breakfast idea. Often times, I have a little basil plant in the house, and a trim off a basil leaf and fill it with sardines…. so simple, but so delicious. Sometimes I put hot sauce or tomato with the sardine filling, or mix the sardines with some Paleo mayo to create a “sardine salad” with the basil. Really the sky is the limit with this little snack gem.

 

Ingredients

1 package of sardines (boneless, skinless and packed in oil)

1/4 cup of Paleo Mayo (we will have a recipe soon on the site)

1 tomato, sliced (any type will do. Each type has a slightly different texture and taste, so experiment with different types)

8-10 basil leaves

 

Instructions

Mix Paleo Mayo with sardines in a bowl. Place a little bit of the “sardine salad” into each basil leaf.

Place tomato slice on the top.

Enjoy
