White Trash Potluck – Taco Salad

IMG_6972Our last minute themed potluck dinner was a success & with only a day to plan their dish, our friends really brought their A-game! We had a tator-tot casserole,  steak tacos topped with hot cheeetos, fruity pebble rice crispies & homemade pigs-in-a-blanket to just name a few!

Then of course you have my dish – a healthified taco salad! No meat, no cheese & all organic! Sounds perfect for the theme right?  Well let me tell you – it was a hit & super yummy! So tasty that I even made it again for dinner last night!

Lets get to it…

  1. In a medium sized skillet toss 1 packet of chorizo style Tofurky & 1 packet taco seasoning – stir & heat (Tofurky only needs to be heated, it’s already cooked)
  2. Chop 3 heads of romaine & toss in large bowl
  3. Chop & add in 2 large tomatoes, I can drained black beans, 1/2C Daiya chedder cheese, warmed Tofurky & 1/2C french dressing – toss well to mix everything together

Serve the mixed salad with a dollop of tofu sour cream & baked chips on the side for extra crunch!  I served it with real cheese Doritos just for the theme & people loved!

Just to note – this dish was a hit AND nobody knew it was vegan! I finally let everyone in on the secret & they were shocked!
