Healthy Dinner Idea: Taco Salad (THM, Real Food)

This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details.

Salad is one of my go to healthy meals and one of my favorites is Taco Salad. You get the flavors of a taco while loading up on veggies.

One way I make Taco Salad healthier is by eliminating the tortilla chips. While they do add a nice cruch, they are really unnecessary flavor wise. As long as the meat is well seasoned, your taco flavor still comes through.

I don’t really think a recipe for Taco Salad is needed. Just add taco seasoning to some lean ground beef or turkey and use it to top a salad made with your favorite taco ingredients.

Finish off your Taco Salad with some sour cream, plain Greek yogurt, or homemade ranch dressing for a delicious real food meal.

For a Trim Healthy Mama S meal top with sour cream, plain Greek yogurt, or this homemade ranch dressing.

I also like to add some healthy fat and a little extra creaminess to my taco salad with some sliced avocado.
