i have a really bad habit of buying loads upon loads of beautiful vegetables, especially this time of year. between my CSA, the 2 farmers markets that i frequent each week and my garden we are bursting at the seems with amazing produce and fruits. so my goal each week is to see how many veggies i can cram into one meal. thus, the farmers market taco was born.
fresh corn cut straight off the cob, beautiful heirloom tomatoes, hot & green peppers, kohlrabi and black olives make up this fun, flavorful and colorful no cook taco filling.
freshly picked oregano and chives brighten up the entire dish.
the veggies are simply prepared and tossed with black beans for some added protein.
if you are feeling jazzy, squeeze a bit of lime juice and a sprinkle of cumin.
the olives add a nice salty bite to the sweet veggies, the perfect addition to taco night!
throw in a generous helping guacamole and you have yourself an super easy, nutritious and amazingly tasty meal - all without breaking a sweat.
