  • 4 roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 red onion sliced

  • 1 avocado (1/2 sliced and 1/2 mashed)
  • 1 cup tortilla chips smashed

  • 1/2 cup Califia Farms Almondmilk salt and pepper to taste

Taco Tossed Salad


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees + slice the corn off the cob. When oven is ready, place the corn on parchment paper with your choice of spices (we used 1 tsp salt, pepper, garlic + paprika) + let roast for about 20 minutes. While that’s roasting, prep your other veggies. Dice your tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cilantro + drain black beans.

Start to make your dressing by adding the lemon, cilantro, garlic, avocado, almondmilk, salt + pepper to taste, + blend . Now, it’s time to assemble your salad. Mix all components together with your dressing. Top with cilantro, 1/2 of a sliced avocado + 1/2 mashed for texture. Enjoy!
