Many people start the new year with many plans. But one of the most common goals is to eat better. The easiest ways to ensure that one achieves a healthy lifestyle is to consume more vegetables. What better way to do that than to prepare a delicious salad? One of my favorites is the Taco Salad.

As the name suggests, it is like eating a delicious crunchy taco. The ingredients can vary depending on your likes. My preference is to prepare it with grilled chicken. Although, it also goes very well grilled steak. To make this, select an organic chicken breast and marinate it ahead of time for about 12 hours with your favorite taco seasoning.

If you prefer, you can create your own taco seasoning by mixing equal parts (about 1/2 spoon) chili powder, ground cumin, sea salt, ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder.

Once it has soaked up some serious flavor, put them on the grill until cooked thoroughly, and golden brown. The chicken can be served hot or cold. As a dressing, I like to make my own dressing combining Cacique® Crema Salvadoreña and readily available ranch dressing powder mix.

The best thing about this dish is that you don’t have to be an expert cook and it is the perfect lunch for busy days.
