Author Notes

This vegetarian taco salad is so flavorful and tasty. We found baby cabbages and yellow tomatoes at the farmer’s market. I love that this salad is packed with vegetables and different tastes. Our family loves this meal for summer dinners. The black beans and avocado make this salad filling. The cheese and sour cream are a delicious addition. The cilantro, green onions, and lime are so bright and fresh. This salad is a fantastic family meal that is packed with nutritious and delicious ingredients! —Leah Hawkins
