Re-Vamped Taco Salad (Healthy Style)

MMMMmmm Did someone say Tacos???????  I love, love, love tacos and it's been really hard for me to cut them out of my life. But NOT ANYMORE - Taco's here I come!! I found a great re-vamped taco recipe from a facebook page! Not just any old facebook page but a great one called Fit Life - Happy Wife (super cute name) Check it out if you get the chance, she has some great ideas! 
Anyhoo....Here is her recipe for Taco Salad (for one) 

Here is what you need - and don't forget, this only makes one serving

  • 1 cup of Chopped Spinach (You don't have to chop it, she just likes hers chopped because it reminds her of shredded lettuce) 
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce 
  • 1 Diced roma tomato 
  • Shredded cheese of choice (She just sprinkles a little bit on the salad) 
  • ¼ onion diced 
  • 1 jalapeno diced 
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of Greek yogurt (sour cream replacement) 
  • Ground Turkey (She uses the extra lean turkey burger patties from Costco, Kirkland brand) 
  • Green Salsa (She uses this as dressing) 
Season the meat to your liking with: 
  • Cayenne pepper 
  • Cumin 
  • Black pepper 
  • Garlic powder 
  • Onion powder 
Directions: Chop all your veggies and set aside. Heat up a small skillet with a little bit of oil (She uses grape seed oil) and throw in your onions and jalapeno. Cook for about 3 minutes and then add in your turkey patty. Season your meat with the ingredients listed above and slowly break up the meat with a spatula, cook until meat looks done. Once the meat is done, remove from heat and let cool in a small bowl. Place your chopped lettuce in a bowl, sprinkle with cheese and your tomato. Pour as much salsa as desired over the bowl of lettuce, cheese and tomato and then top with your meat mixture. Last but not least, add a heaping tablespoon of Greek yogurt on top and Enjoy! 

Side note: When making this for lunch at work...separate everything into Tupperware or Ziploc bags so that nothing gets soggy and then build the salad.
