What Makes a Salad a "Salad"?
If you're on a diet, Mexican food may seem definitely off menu – however, you don't have to give it up! It's all in the fresh ingredients, as salads come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors! Let's start with the basics: greens, fruits, veggies, and toppings. With the majority of salads, lettuce is used as the base ingredient, however, these leafy layers do not wholly define what it means to be "salad." Here are 8 Summer "Salads" that defy the salad standard.
TACO SALAD A fried flour tortilla bowl filled with ground beef, refried beans, lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole and tomatoes.
ENSALADA FRESCA Fresh romaine hearts topped with your choice of meat, fresh onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, two slices of avocado and shredded white cheese. Served with your choice of Grilled Chicken, Grilled Steak, Grilled Shrimp, and dressing.
