As I was preparing our dinner a few nights ago, my husband looked at what I was cooking and stated that my food/cooking style was “Mediterranean Tex-Mex.” I laughed at first, but as I thought about it, it is very true. I follow a Mediterranean style diet a large majority of the time with veggies, nuts/seeds, lean proteins, etc., but there is often a little Tex-Mex flare mixed in. Whether it’s cumin, green chilies, guacamole, beans, or bell pepper and onion mixtures- I love to mix up traditional dishes with a little flare. I find these combinations so satisfying and enjoyable! In Texas most adore their Tex-Mex meals, I know I do, so maybe I am working to add it in any way I can!
I have a lot of basic go-to meals that I prepare regularly for my family, but this salad below is nutrient packed and oh so delicious! The first time I prepared it, I knew I had to share! The colors were so vibrant. With the different flavors and nutrients I thought it fit perfectly with my newly deemed ‘food style’ of Mediterranean Tex-Mex!
