Taco Salad

Posted in /Cooking/Side_Dishes/Salads on Tuesday, February 05, 2019


This is one of the first labs I do with my grade 10s. They love it...even though there are "beans" in it! I use this one because it has meat and veggies, so there is the possibility of cross-contamination. So far (knock-on-wood) I have not had a single student cut their veggies on the same cutting board as they're meat!

Yield: 4 Salads

1/4 tsp salt
1 pinch pepper
1/4 cup oil (neutral flavor such as canola)
1/4 cup olive oil

Directions

  1. Wrap beet in foil and roast in the oven on a baking tray (to help capture leaks) for 60 minutes at 400F
  2. Unwrap beet and allow to cool slightly
  3. Roughly cut beet and measure out 1/2 cup
