Taco(less) Salad With Ground Turkey, Avocado & Tomato
This is my version of a taco salad…minus the taco! This is a great salad because it’s filling and full of bold, Mexican-influenced flavors that really satisfy. It’s low carbohydrates, too! This salad is so good, you won’t even miss the taco!
- 1 bag of romaine lettuce
- 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat three-cheese blend
- 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 1/8 cup sliced jalepenos (fresh or jarred)
- 2 tbsp hot sauce (preferably Frank’s Red Hot)
- 1 pack reduced-sodium dry taco seasoning
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the ground turkey and cook for about 15 minutes until the turkey is lightly brown and cooked through. Use a spatula to make sure the meat is broken apart into small pieces. Add in the dry taco seasoning, 1/4 cup of water and the hot sauce and mix well. Turn the heat off and allow to cool slightly.
Plate the lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, jalepenos and sour cream and add a heaping spoonful of the ground turkey mixture on top. Sprinkle the cheese over the salad so it melts with the heat of the turkey meat.
