Turkey Taco Salad
Gluten Free Living – 2021
Turkey Taco Salad is fantastic. This is a healthier, lower calorie version of Taco Salad that you will simply love. I started with turkey sausage for the meat. Then I added my Homemade Taco Seasoning to the meat. Toss in lettuce, tomatoes, kidney beans, olives, corn, cucumbers, bell peppers, Fiesta Mexican cheese and tortilla chips and you have a match made in heaven. 🙂
We put our house up for sale during the holidays and I was trying to clear out my pantry of excess stuff. Olives, kidney beans, corn and turkey sausage were used to great effect to accomplish that goal! This recipe makes a lot, so it’s perfect for company. Especially if you’re trying to keep your house cool during the hot, summer months. I served it for lunch and found it simply wonderful.
The turkey sausage provides just the right amount of heat if you’re a Tex-Mex fan. This salad is crunchy, healthy and pretty much irresistible. It doesn’t hurt that turkey is a lot lower in calories than ground beef either. Give Turkey Taco Salad a try and you’ll be smacking your lips just like I did. Hearty, satisfying, filling, worth making again and again.
