Fish taco salad

So, I typically eat this for dinner but I ate it for lunch today.  It’s amazing with mango salsa and so simple yet packed with flavor!  I grill extra fish and then can use it throughout the week for meals like this, it’s so easy to put together using left overs.

21 day fix fish taco salad

Fish taco salad (21 day fix approved)

Makes 1 serving

  • 4 oz cooked white meat fish (I love Tilapia) (1 red)
  • 2 cups spring mix with some cut up tomatoes (2 green)
  • OPTIONAL:  Fresh salsa if you have it- Mango salsa is amazing
  • OPTIONAL: Avocado or try my Avocado “dressing”
  1. Put vegetable on large plate.  I added some tomatoes but onions and peppers would be perfect too.
  2. Add cooked fish on top, reheat if necessary
  3. I used my avocado “dressing” to really pack that extra flavor or add 1/4 avocado slices.
  4. Garnish with salsa or mango salasa

Notes:  If you’re packing this to reheat later, pack the fish separately and add after you’ve heated it up.  Add a squirt of lime to add some extra flavor as well.

21 day fix portions:  2 green, 1 red and 1 blue (if using avocado)

Avocado “Dressing”

Ok, this this is basically a simple version of guacamole but the flavor is amazing and I love to put it on salads and mix it all together as a dressing.  You can make some tortilla chips out of tortillas and use a dip or add to a burrito!!

Avocado "dressing"

Avocado “Dressing”

Makes 1 serving

  • 1/4 of a ripe avocado (1 blue container)
  • 1/2 lime juiced (free)
  • Fresh chopped cilantro or dried cilantro to taste
  1. Mash avocado until it has small lumps in it.
  2.  Juice the lime over the avocado and add the fresh cilantro or dried cilantro to taste.
  3. Add to your salad, burrito, or use as a dip.

Notes:  This should be used within 12 hours as it will start to turn brown.  It will be safe to eat but will look gross!  Use the rest of your lime to add to your water as an extra twist of flavor or squirt over your fish if you really love the taste of lime!

21 day fix:  1 blue
