• 1 lb ground turkey, chicken, or lean beef
  • 1 packet Taco seasoning
  • 4 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 large Tomato, diced
  • ½ cup Red onion, small dice
  • ½ cup Sliced olives
  • 4 tablespoon Sour cream
  • 4 tablespoon Salsa


Cook the ground turkey, ground beef, or ground chicken following the taco seasoning packet. Set aside until cools slightly.

Wash, dry, and chop the lettuce head and lay it in the bottom of 4 salad bowls.

For each salad add:

  • ½ cup ground meat (beef, chicken, or turkey)
  • 1-2 cups lettuce
  • ¼ of an avocado
  • ¼ cup of cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup of chopped tomato
  • 1 Tbsp+ of diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoon sliced black olives
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream 
  • 1 tablespoon salsa

Feel free to add your favorite salad dressing, but the sour cream and salsa make a fantastic dressing on their own! 

Add the optional garnishes like cilantro, sliced green onions, guacamole, or salt and pepper. Enjoy!


Ground beef, ground chicken, ground turkey, or shredded chicken or beef can be used for the recipe.

Spinach or shredded cabbage can be used in place of lettuce.

To use this recipe for meal prep lunches for the week don’t add dressing or sour cream until it’s ready to eat and layer the ingredients in a jar or container.

Skip the cheese and sour cream for a dairy free and paleo version.

We recommend making your own sugar-free taco seasoning since most store-bought brands add sugar.
