Tuesday Recipe: Taco Salad: Whole30 Style
After work, after my run, after baseball registration I whipped up this salad for my tomorrow lunch and dinner. Oh my gosh. It is SO good that I ended up eating it tonight for dinner along with Troy! He wasn't sure about the purple cabbage but at least gave it a try. His response "not bad" as he shoveled the last forkful into his mouth!
I made a ton so I am going to drop off a tupperware for my sister at CrossFit-she brings my nephew to the same building for Taekwondo after my CF class, which is going well. Although last Thursday I learned that i have no skill in learning snatch , clean and clean and press. I suck miserably but practiced all weekend with a piece of PCV pipe because my form is horrible. Hopefully at class tomorrow it isn't as horrible as it was last Thursday.
This is REALLY good:
Brown 2 pounds grass fed beef
Season with 2 T chili powder, 2T garlic powder, 1/2 salsa, 2T cumin, 1 T ground pepper, 1 T red chili pepper flakes
1 head purple cabbage
1 clump green onions
2 mangoes oh my gosh how I love mango
3 T olive oil
2T balsamic vinegar
Place greens onto plate, pile on beef. Oh yeah! The cool crisp vegetables and fruit with the warm spicy beef is just wonderful.
Speaking of beef..I found another grass fed beef producer in the area that will DELIVER to me free of charge any Thursday! Awesome.
My first batch will arrive this Thursday. He also invited me out to his farm to check out the operation. Gotta like that. I don't imagine I will see cows knee high in manure, being fed corn and being dosed with antibiotics because their stomachs can't digest corn. OK, that's another tangent.
So enjoy the Taco Salad above. You will like.
