Taco Salad

Flip it!

This dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser whether out at a party or at home on your dinner table. Doritos and tacos together in a waistline friendly salad – who wouldn’t want that?

You’ve probably seen Mexican taco salad at restaurants before. In case you haven’t, it’s basically like an enormous Mexican taco in bowl form. No taco shell needed! Unlike most restaurant versions, my healthy taco salad is low carb and gluten-free.

I was pretty proud of myself this week. I packed my own lunch for 3 days! Lunch is the hardest part of the day for me. It’s pretty easy just to walk over to the grocery store and spend around $4 to $6 on a salad. There is also a Taco Bell near by and a really good Candy Shop that also sells sandwiches and soup for lunch. That can get pretty spendy every day.

This easy taco salad recipe also makes a generous amount – six large servings to feed even a larger family. But if you don’t need that many, don’t worry. It’s also super easy to adjust it to fewer servings if you need to.


1 head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
3 roma tomatoes
1 bunch of scallions chopped
1 pound of ground beef, lean
1 package of Mrs Dash Low Sodium Taco Seasoning
1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
Catalina French Dressing
Optional toppings
½ cup of low sodium black beans (optional)
½ cup of low sodium corn


Brown the ground beef and drain the fat. Add in the seasoning spice packet and ¾ cup of water. Let simmer until the beef has thickened up.

While the beef is getting brown, chop the salad, tomatoes, and scallions and prep all the rest of the ingredients.

Top the salad with cheese and dressing. Beans and Corn are optional and not figured in nutrition info.

You can easily customize this healthy taco salad recipe to your liking. Feel free to throw in any other veggies you have on hand, or omit anything you don’t like. That’s one of the great things about easy salad recipes – you don’t have to be that precise!
