Simple Taco Salad

Taco Salad is a staple in our household. I put taco salad on our menu at least once a month. It’s so quick to prepare, it’s healthy, it’s delicious and it’s fun, because YOU get to pick what to put in your salad.

I always prepare the salad like a salad bar. I will cut up lots of different veggies, put out corn, beans, chips, seasoned taco meat, salsa, avocado, different salad dressings, ect and then my hubby and I top our salads however we choose!

There isn’t really a recipe for this salad, as you can choose whatever your family likes, but I will provide a list of ingredients that we typically use for our Taco Salads:

Taco Salad:

Carrots – chopped
Onions – diced/chopped
Peppers – chopped
Olives – chopped
Avocados – chopped or turned into guacamole
Beans – either refried as a topping or any whole bean (heated would be best probably)
Corn Chips – crunched as a topping
Tomatoes – chopped/diced
Shredded Chicken/beef – Seasoned w/homemade taco seasoning
Ground beef/turkey – Seasoned w/homemade taco seasoning
Cheese/Sour cream – if you can eat dairy
Salad Dressing of Choice

Throw together and enjoy!

  1. yum!! I need to try taco salad again. I had crossed it off our list becaue my husband is non-dairy, but I had forgotten some of your fun toppings (corn chips! avocado! beans! yummmm!)
    Who needs cheese and sour cream when you have those fun toppings? Thanks for sharing!
