This salad is one of my Go To's in the summer time...it's quick, easy, light and healthy. You can mix this bad boy up any ol' way you see fit, just open up that vegetable drawer and go nuts! I have included some my staples in the recipe below. Enjoy!
1 lb of Ground Meat (Turkey, Chicken, Beef)
1 Package of Taco seasoning
Approx 1/2 pint of Cherry Tomatoes
1Avacado Diced (Squeeze w/ lemon or lime juice to prevent browning)
1 Green Onion chopped.
(And I threw in some left over yellow pepper ( the choice is yours...))
1 cup of Cheddar Cheese
1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can of garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
Approx 2 cups of Green Leaf Lettuce, chopped
1 Small back of Cheese Doritos (broken into pieces)
2-3 Tablespoons of Fat Free or Light Thousand Island Dressing (To lightly coat salad)
In large salad bowl mix all the beans and vegetables. In pan bring to medium high heat and brown the ground meat. Once browned, add taco seasoning on top to coat meat (sometimes I add a tiny bit of water to spread the seasoning love) add to the vegetables in salad bowl. Add cheese and top with enough dressing to lightly coat the salad. For an extra salty crunch and to slightly negate all of your other healthier choices, top off salad with small bag of cheese Doritos! YUM!
