LOKO April 2008: Southwest Salad

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Blogging Event, Food Porn, Recipes

One of the biggest holidays in April is Earth Day, and this month (every month, actually), the Lights Out, Knives Out challenge asks us to make a dish that uses as little electricity as possible. So a salad seemed like a natural choice. Since last night was all about Tex-Mex, southwestern flavors, what better starter than a Southwest Salad?

This was quite simple to make, required no electric or real work at all, and went quite well with the pasta dish. I used this recipe as a guide, but used ready made tortilla strips and spicy ranch dressing rather than making my own using regular ranch as a base. I’m looking forward to doing this one again in summer when I can get local tomatoes and corn.

    I have bookmarked this one, in the summer when all the farmers markets are open we eat a lot of salads, this would be a main course for me :)
