I am really fortunate to live in a small city with a great farmer’s market. It is busy and hopping in the summer time! We have an adorable main street here and it’s enjoyable to walk around and shop. My son and I like to go up there on Saturdays and see the local goodies. This week we got to sample some local honey. I ended up buying some clover honey and a blackberry infused honey. And my son actually tried it and loved it! There was also some in-season peaches and tons of veggies and fresh lettuce.
So my brain started working with what I could make with my farmer’s market finds. I had purchased romaine lettuce, green onion, cherry tomatoes and corn. Someone there was also selling some fresh guacamole so I bought that too! I can never turn down guac. Never.
When I got home I started rummaging around in my pantry and I saw that I had some of my favorite BUSH’S® Organic Black Beans, a can of olives and corn chips. I knew exactly what I needed to make – taco salad!
This salad is so filling (black beans have lots of fiber and protein!) that you won’t even miss the meat!
