Maybe it’s the fun of filling your own shell exactly to your taste, or maybe it’s the fresh, juicy salsa setting off the richness of the meat, but whatever the reason, taco night is a dinner tradition that families love – and a tradition you don’t have to give up when you ditch the corn tortilla. Re-creating the shell with Paleo ingredients is always an option (some people make shells out of mashed plantains for example), but it’s even easier to do away with the shell entirely and enjoy the taco experience with a more sophisticated presentation.
To get the full taco flavor, this recipe calls for homemade Catalina dressing and taco seasoning; I’ve included both the recipes below if you don’t already know how to make Paleo versions. The Catalina dressing uses homemade ketchup, so make sure you have a batch of that before tackling this recipe (it’s really easy to make). The dressing and the seasoning recipes will probably give you some leftovers, but you can always store these and use them another day.
The directions given here are for one big bowl of salad. If you like taco dinners because everyone can make their own, simply skip the last step, and instead lay out all the ingredients on the table in separate bowls. That way, everyone can construct an individual meal, and you won’t waste any tomatoes or cucumbers on the picky eaters. It’s a perfect easy recipe for introducing skeptical friends to Paleo, since tacos are a familiar meal that everyone likes, so you can put to rest all their fears about eating “weird” food. Serve up your salad with some Mexican chicken soup on the side and enjoy!
