Nach-Yo Salad

Noch yo salad 

For lunch lately this salad has been my favorite thing. It is easy, cheap, healthy and yummy. This is my version of nacho salad. Nacho salad is usually a whole lot of nacho and very little salad, except of a pile of shredded iceberg lettuce. I loved the idea but wanted, well, some veggies. So here is what I did.

1. Pre-heat oven 350

take a baking pan and spread some taco chips and sprinkle grated cheese over the top. Bake 5 minutes till chips are toasty and cheese is melted.

2. While the chips are in the oven, roughly chop up veggies and toss all together


green onions




3. Take toasted chips and set on a plate, pile chopped veggies in a heap on top. Squeeze some lime juice over the whole thing and garnish with half avocado.

Now you could do anything with this salad like add bean, shredded chicken, sour cream, olives. If you want more of dressing on the veggies, go for it. Change up the veggies to your liking. But I think the cool, crunchy veggies on the crips chip layer with melty cheese is soooo good.

Now go make your own salad because this is nach-yo salad xoxoxo


ps. thank you Angie for the name ;)

Clarice, that looks yummy! And girlie, because the guys around here do not like avocados. We girls don't mind a bit. More for us!

Now that looks good! I love nachos and salad and this is a better combo of veggie to cheese. I think I have some shredded cabbage in the frig. I'll try it for lunch!
