One of the fastest and easiest ways to make fun taco fillings is to go to your local salad bar at the grocery store like the Whole Foods Salad Bar and create some unique mix of vegetables, protein and grains like you would for a salad, and then dump that mix onto a tortilla.
Whole Foods 365 brand organic corn tortillas are like $1 for a bag of 12 tortillas, a fantastic deal in my book. Plus those corn tortillas are vegan, low fat, and low sodium.
In my fish taco creation above, Whole Foods had in their hot food bar Teriyaki Salmon which I cut up into smaller chunks and coupled the fish with arugula, Cranberry Quinoa salad, red peppers, purple cabbage, shredded beets, and tomato chunks I got from the salad bar.
Seriously, this is how I can make a different kind of taco every day of the week. And the beauty of these salad bar tacos is that no cooking is involved and it is a fun way to eat more vegetables in your day.
In this taco creation, I got roasted butternut squash, black beans, corn, purple cabbage, tomato chunks, and avocado which I bought separately and cut up.
Next time you're at a salad bar, tell me what kind of creative taco filling you can come up with.
