Taco Salad with Cumin Dressing

8 tortillas
1 teaspoon powdered mustard
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon ground cumin
8 cups romaine lettuce
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 cups turkey, chopped and cooked
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
4 teaspoons lemon juice
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

Toast the tortillas on a baking sheet in a 400F oven for about 10 minutes. While hot, sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese. Cool and break into bite-size pieces.

Chop the lettuce and arrange it in the bottom of a salad bowl.

Make the cumin dressing by combining the salt, vinegar, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice, mustard, cumin, water and oil in a bowl or jar.

Heat the turkey in a skillet with the cumin seeds. Sprinkle chunks of turkey over the lettuce. Add the tomato pieces and cheese. Pour on the cumin dressing and top with tortilla chips.
