Salmon Tacos with Jalapeno Yogurt Ranch

Recipe sponsored by Old El Paso

I get so excited this time of year when I start craving more light and refreshing foods. Some good summer veggies with a salty sauce are all you need to get started with meal inspo. I knew I wanted corn and cucumber in these tacos and I was really craving ranch. I went with salmon and made the ranch a little extra dilly because those flavors go so well together.
A fresh cucumber and corn salsa. I coated the salmon in taco seasoning and when I put it in the pan on high heat it created a nice blackened crust on the fish. It flaked up perfectly to go into these crunchy tacos. Break up the fish and put it in a bowl. The ranch sauce had a yogurt base with lots of jalapeno, dill, cilantro, and chives. It was a great match with the fish and salsa. These tacos were so good! the crunch of the shells was needed to match the tender fish and creamy avocado. The fresh veggie salsa really brightened them up. Also it was great having the jalapeno ranch in the fridge to put on everything for the rest of the week.
