My family has always loved taco salad. Personally, I'm a big fan because it’s super easy to throw together. It's a go-to weeknight meal for me. My kids love it because it’s just plain good! Win-win.
Traditional taco salad recipes however include a lot of ingredients that aren’t exactly on my nice list. Gone are the days of busting out a bag of chips and cheesy salsa dip to go with a taco salad! Let's be honest, it was barely salad.
This lightened-up, paleo-friendly version has become a weekly staple on my menu plan.
Easy Paleo Turkey Taco Salad
2 lbs ground turkey
2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
½ teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
Pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 bunch green butter lettuce, chopped
1 small bunch red leaf lettuce, chopped
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 10 oz container of grape tomatoes, sliced
2 avocados, diced
Chunky salsa to serve
Preheat your skillet to just above medium heat. Add the ground turkey and brown until cooked through. Add in the seasonings and stir well.
In a large salad bowl layer the butter lettuce, red leaf lettuce, baby spinach, ground turkey, and grape tomatoes.
Serve with salsa and diced avocado.
Try serving this topped with sliced black olives (my kids love it that way) or, if you do dairy, try a sprinkle of your favorite shredded cheese.
Try it! It’s so good; I promise you won’t miss the chips.
