Turkey Taco Salad with Black Beans

I tried a new recipe for this for the sake of the taco challenge, but honestly I think taco salads turn out even better when I just improvise them. Still a solid recipe, though I’m not convinced I need black beans in my taco salad.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

These were not an exact science (I had to add more water, etc.) but the results were quite nice.

John in particular liked this marinade for steak tacos. We had with homemade flour tortillas (recipe to follow).

Zahav Israeli Couscous

I took several shortcuts when I made this and kind of improvised (I also halved it) and it still turned out really well.

Bon App Stroganoff

A slightly fancier take on one of my favorite dishes. I meant to add dill, but forgot.

Israeli Potato Salad

I think this was the unsung hero/surprise hit of the Zahav dinner. We kept eating this again and again with sausages, burgers, you name it. Honestly probably the best potato salad I’ve ever had.

Greek Lemon Potatoes

These were tasty, though I thought mine turned out slightly burned – I may have cut them a little smaller than the recipe recommended.

Moroccan Carrots

This was the dish I was least excited about from our Zahav dinner, but they still were enjoyed.

Scallops with Shallot Herb Sauce

An old Cooking Light recipe – quite good, but I had a lot more sauce than I needed. I actually folded the rest into some ground pork to make sausages, which was quite good. Pictured with lemon greek potatoes (recipe to follow).

Tomatoes Stuffed with Dirty Rice

I honestly wasn’t sure how much I was going to like this Zahav recipe, but the tiny amount of chicken liver here imparts so much flavor.
