Did you know that tacos only date back to the 19th century and that their true origin remains unknown to this day? Interesting, right? As you may already know, tacos are a popular staple dish of Mexican cuisine. Traditionally, a taco is made with a meat of any sort, sauce, onion, and fresh coriander. Nowadays, there are a thousand more different fillings you can add. It’s just so good! You would totally be missing out if you didn’t try this flavorful meal. Besides, this taco salad has all the ingredients of a classic taco, but is prepared in a 1L mason jar. If you like to plan your lunches ahead, this recipe is ideal. We used canned tuna since it’s a food most people already have at home. However, you could replace it with black beens, ground meat leftovers, or seasoned jackfruit.
Green onions, finely chopped
Limes (zest and juice)
Fresh coriander, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Brown rice, cooked
Black olives, sliced
Plum tomato, diced
English cucumber, sliced
Mache lettuce, mesclun, or lettuce
Fried onions (homemade or shop-bought)
Prepare the dressing directly at the bottom of a 1L mason jar.
Add all the taco salad ingredients except the fried onions in the order listed above. Put the lid and keep in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
Note : For the fried onions (or any crispy fillings), it’s better to keep them in a seperate sealed container and add them to the salad when serving.
To make this mason jar taco salad recipe, know that you can find fried onions in many grocery stores with international or, more specifically, South American products. Otherwise, you can simply replace them with marinated onions or nuts.
