Taco Salad With Cumin Dressing Recipe

Step 1

Toast the tortillas on a baking sheet in a 400 F oven for about 10 min. While hot, sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese. Cool and break into bite-size pieces.

Step 2

Chop the lettuce and arrange it in the bottom of a salad bowl. Make the cumin dressing by combining the salt, vinegar, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice, mustard, cumin, water and oil in a bowl or jar. Heat the turkey in a skillet with the cumin seeds. Sprinkle chunks of turkey over the lettuce. Add the tomato pieces and cheese. Pour on the cumin dressing and top with tortilla chips.
