Mexican-inspired “taco salads” are and excellent way to eat your leafy greens while still being able to enjoy a hearty meal. Our fiesta salad calls for quality steak cuts that add a protein punch among all of the other garden-fresh ingredients and a generous sprinkling of Sargento® Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese to ensure we really get that Mexican flavor!
