My take on the Marina Girl salad:
Although it’s not the most exciting thing on their menu (and I feel like an idiot ordering it — this salad needs a new name), the Marina Girl salad is one of my very favorite things at Tacolicious. Yes, yes, their roasted veggie tacos and potato/chorizo tacos are amazing, but this simple salad is a refreshing start to what always ends up being an over-indulgent meal.
A few friends decided to get together for an impromptu Mexican meal last night, and I decided to start us off with my take on the Marina Girl salad, before we all gorged ourselves on guacamole, sweet potato tacos (so good!) and flan.
Here’s what you need:
2 Romaine hearts, chopped
3 good sized radishes (I did watermelon radishes since they’re so pretty)
1 extra large avocado
Handful of pepitas (I like to roast mine with cumin and paprika)
Crumbled cotija cheese
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt, Pepper, a sprinkle of cumin
1 smushed garlic clove
Instructions: mix all those bad boys up in one big bowl. Then enjoy!
