This make for a quick meal on Taco Tuesday! You could easily use a firm fish if tofu’s not your thang.

Serve with lettuce, tortillas and top with cilantro, green onions and jalapeño.

Spicy Beet Salad

This is a spicy number! I use the cooked beets from Trader Joe’s to make this a quick and easy meal. Leave out the feta and it’s vegan! You can make this in advance and chill till you are ready to eat!

  • 4 beets cooked
  • 3 scallions, sliced thin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp harissa (or more if you like it spicy)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped parley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mixed greens
  • 1/4 c feta, crumbled (optional)

Toss everything but the salad greens together in a large bowl. Serve on top of salad greens.

Serves 4.
