Nothing beats the fresh, piquant, well-rounded flavor of this protein-packed salad. Made with sweet red onions, tangy cherry tomatoes, crunchy romaine lettuce, spiced and seared Impossible™ Beef Made From Plants, and crispy tortilla chips, it makes a meaty, satisfying lunch or dinner. And the best part? It’s easy! Just chop, sauté, and assemble. When you think about it, taco salads are basically deconstructed tacos you can eat with a fork. And you can still say you’re eating a salad, so that’s a win, right?

Another great thing about this recipe? It’s incredibly simple. Everything starts with cutting up some onion and garlic and then browning the Impossible Beef with the usual array of taco meat spices thrown in. Once that’s ready, simply dice your favorite toppings, combine with oil and vinegar, and assemble the taco salad in your bowl.

You can top your salad with whatever you’d like, but we especially like the crisp and vibrant combination of black beans, tomato, romaine, cilantro, cheese, and crispy tortilla pieces. Feel free to mix it up. The Impossible™ taco meat is the real star of the salad here. This taco salad makes enough for four-six servings. Enjoy!
