As I have most likely expressed previously on the blog, salads were never my favorite food in the world. I love my Dad, but his idea of a “salad” was iceberg lettuce, shredded cheese and ranch. So anytime someone tried to make me eat actual spinach or cabbage or even broccoli, my taste buds were like “uh, no thank you!”
Since then, however, I’m all about salads! Especially these Taylor Farms Chopped Salad Kits! They make everything literally SO easy. Every ingredient comes chopped and there are even cute lil bags of the toppings and the dressing inside. The most effort I have to do is mix it in a bowl. Yes please!
Roasted Garlic Goodness
And while you could 100% make this Roasted Garlic Chopped Salad bag as a meal by itself…I thought to myself, why not take it up a not and combine it with one of my favorite food groups?! TACOS! And thus, the Roasted Garlic Green Goddess Tacos were born. In the bag is a mix of romaine, cabbage, and broccoli slaw! It also comes with smoked white cheddar cheese, croutons and the creamiest roasted garlic dressing!
Loaded with everything green, garlicky, these tacos are the perfect easy weeknight dinner. For the base of the taco, I used the Roasted Garlic Chopped Salad kit! It has cabbage, broccoli slaw and romaine so it made for the perfect “slaw” for the taco!
For the protein, I used my 2 Ingredient Salsa Verde Chicken which is super juicy, tender and has the perfect amount of spice. As for the toppings, I used whatever green things I had on hand! Green onions, sliced avocado and fresh jalapeno! When you put everything together in one of my Homemade Corn Tortillas, it makes an extremely easy, extra flavorful dinner!
And yes, while eating this tacos, you will most likely feel like a Goddess. You’re welcome.
Let’s get into how to make them!
Ingredients You Need for Roasted Garlic Green Goddess Tacos:
- Taylor Farms Roasted Garlic Chopped Salad Kit
- chicken breast
- salsa verde
- corn tortillas
- garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cracked pepper
- your favorite taco toppings (sliced avocado, green onions, jalapenos etc.)
How to Make Roasted Garlic Green Goddess Tacos:
First, go ahead and make the salsa verde chicken. To get step by step how-to photos, click the link a few paragraphs back. I’ll explain it to ya here though because I love ya!
Take the raw chicken breast and place it inside of your Instant Pot. Add in the garlic powder, salt, onion powder, pepper and cumin if desired. Pour the entire jar of salsa verde on top of the chicken. Secure the Instant Pot lid tightly sealed. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, let’s set up the Roasted Garlic Salad Kit! In a large bowl, place the greens along with the smoked white cheddar cheese, half of the croutons and half of the garlic dressing. Mix to combine and set in the fridge. Make sure to save half of the croutons and half of the creamy garlic dressing to garnish those tacos with!
Speaking of taco garnishes….go ahead and slice and dice your favorite ones! To continue with the “green goddess” theme, all of mine were green! I sliced avocado, diced green onion and jalapeno! I think in this garnish situation, less is more.
Now that the salsa verde chicken is most likely done, shred it up using two forks. Aaaaand now it’s time for assembly, folks!
Warm the corn tortillas and/or slightly char them using the stove eye. Begin layering your tacos, starting with the ultra delicious roasted garlic salad “slaw” as the bottom layer. On top, add the salsa verde chicken. Top with the garnishes you just sliced. Don’t forget to garnish with the extra croutons and a generous drizzle of the roasted garlic dressing.
These lil tacos are crunchy, light, delicious and the absolute perfect dinner! Hope you guys enjoy them! XO
