Tacos are the perfect mid-week lunch or dinner, and a great way to get everyone eating a range of salad ingredients. Have a bit of fun with the salad ingredients you use to build the tacos - variety in texture and colour is key. To make things even easier, think about using this recipe to batch-cook mince, and then use it to make tacos, burritos, cottage pies, and more.
