Mel’s Turkey Taco Salad Recipe
This one is for my Times Union BCC Peeps:
99% fat free ground turkey
taco kit or make your own seasoning
romaine lettuce (shredded)
low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
any other veggies you want!
chobani PLAIN fat free Greek yogurt
Brown the meat and add the taco seasoning as the package tells you. If you have high blood pressure, I would recommend seasoning it yourself to bring down the sodium content.
Fill a bowl with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sprinkle with green chilies, ONE serving of shredded cheddar and a few chopped black olives
Add ONE serving of your piping hot turkey meat (on top of the cheese so it will get gooey and melt)
For the dressing: mix a tablespoon of the Greek yogurt with some salsa and you have a super healthy, low fat dressing.
Add your dressing and enjoy!
This is very low in fat and cals (only about 300 cals). High in protein too and you get about 2-3 servings of veggies. Woot Woot! If you want a taco, put the ingredients in a Josephs brand whole wheat tortilla or La Tortilla Factory brand.
