Tonight I did some digging through the pantry and the fridge to come up with salad to go with our taquitos. Trader Joe's has a good soyrizo and potato taquito that doesn't have any dairy - they are awesome. I just don't have much time to cook this week so I'm take shortcuts wherever I can! I found some tomatoes and an avocado in the fridge and a can of black beans in the pantry. So a little of this and that and I had a side dish.
As we started eating, Ana tried the salad and said "this is good - is it a new recipe?" I replied "I didn't have a recipe - I just put some stuff together."
Hallie took one look at the salad and said "I could write a recipe for that - take everything I don't like, chop it and stir it up in a bowl."
So in honor of her I present the recipe for the Everything Hallie Doesn't Like Salad:
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 avocado, diced small
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
2 T. lime juice
a little bit of fresh cilantro
handful of pepitas
salt, pepper and cayenne
The rest of us liked it :-)
I also made some fruit kebabs:
