Taco Salad

For a quick and delicious dinner, go for a taco salad. 

Made entirely on the stove top, this is a great meal during the peak of summer.  Even the boys will enjoy this one!

Taco Salad – Mom


  • 1 lb. ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • Taco seasoning {make your own}
  • 1 C tomato sauce
  • Leafy Green Lettuce (of your choosing, add spinach)
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper (or other colors that you like), chopped
  • 1 large tomato, sliced and diced
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced (if desired)
  • White or whole grain tortilla chips, crushed
  • Catalina dressing {make your own}
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded


Begin by browning the ground beef or turkey; drain excess grease. 

Add the taco seasoning and the 1 C tomato sauce and heat until warmed. 

Meanwhile, prepare the salad bed by placing salad greens in 4-6 salad bowls. 

Add shredded carrots, diced yellow bell peppers, diced tomatoes, and avocado.  Like olives or black beans?  Add these to your salad too! 

Crush a handful of tortilla chips over the salad.  Then, spoon on 1-2 tablespoons of taco meat. 

Add shredded cheddar  cheese and top with salad dressing.
