This is a family favorite! Middle C continually asks for it. Yes, salad!
Romaine lettuce, chopped
pepitas (roasted/salted pumpkin seeds)
shredded parmesan or romano cheese
crushed tortilla chips
3 T. pepitas
3 T Parmesan/Romano cheese
3 T red wine vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 t salt
1 bunch cilantro
Combine all dressing ingredients (except cilantro) in blender. Blend until smooth. Add cilantro, a little at a time, until well combined. This is a lot of dressing and can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple days.
That is it...fresh and delicious and no preservatives or chemicals! A perfect salad to accompany Chicken Tortilla, Chicken Tortilla, Chicken Tortilla Soup!
Sometimes I add chicken, black beans, corn and tomatoes to make the salad a complete meal in itself.
