About This Recipe:
Salad season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with a taco salad bowl. Like most of my salad recipes, this is really just more of an “assembly” and inspo idea for a quick, healthy meal. The only thing that you actually have to cook is the ground turkey, and then after that it’s all about the toppings. This would also be great with avocado, pepper jack cheese, sour cream, red onions, etc. You can use your favorite store bought dressing for this, but I prefer just a squeeze of lime juice, olive oil, and maybe some red wine vinegar. Everything will be ready in 20 minutes- perfect for when it’s too nice out to be in the kitchen for long.
