  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 12 ounces salad oil

Salad Ingredients:
  • 2 corn tortillas

  • Vegetable oil

  • 1 large (or two small) heads romaine lettuce, rinsed and spun dry

  • 1/3 cup finely grated Cotija cheese (or parmesan cheese)

  • Roasted red bell pepper, peeled and cut into julienne strips

  • 1/2 cup pepitas (roasted pumpkin seeds)

Salad Assembly Instructions:

Cut corn tortillas into matchstick-size strips. Heat oil in sauté pan; fry tortilla strips until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Set aside. Tear romaine into bite-size pieces. Place greens on salad plates and ladle approximately 2 ounces of cilantro pepita dressing on each salad. Sprinkle each dish with Cotija cheese and tortilla strips. Arrange four red pepper strips like spokes on the top of each salad, and garnish with whole pepitas.

> Note: Cotija cheese is a hard cheese, similar to Parmesan. It is available at some grocery stores and most Mexican markets.
