Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Easy Taco Salad



We love to eat salad in the summertime, and I love the ease of this salad.  I can't remember exactly where I read the idea of this salad, but I know it was in some Weight Watchers materials. 

Here's how to throw it together:  Take salad greens (I used a bag of premixed salad today), add in tomatoes, olives, grated cheese, avocado, cilantro, green onion, etc.  Then, add in a can or two of chili.  (That's the idea I read in the WW materials.)  Use vegetarian if you'd like to keep the fat content down.  Add salsa and sour cream if desired.  Serve with tortilla chips, or use some tortilla strips, like the ones pictured above.  Yum!  It's a filling meal and one that doesn't require heating up the oven.

What meals do you like to fix when the weather gets hot?

Thankful thought:  Thanks for sunshine, summer vacations, and salads.

  1. As soon as the weather will get summery, I'll try this salade. For now, I'm still on "winter-food". Summer is having a hard time to begin here....
    In summer I love to make a simple cucumber salad. Fresh and simple. I'm not much of a cook *Ü*

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …
