2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
3 ounces lean ground turkey or Boca Meatless Ground Burger, cooked
2 tablespoons tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons black beans
2 tablespoons onions, caramelized
2 tablespoons corn
1 tablespoon shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced
Use caution when ordering this at a restaurant. Taco salads are often comprised of fatty ground beef, full-fat cheese, sour cream, and a fried tortilla shell.
Layer all ingredients in a bowl. Serve with salsa.
For some reason, salads often tend to go terribly wrong. Here's how to avoid that wretched turn. Base your salad on veggies, fruits, and grilled meat. Never dump dressing on a salad; be a dipper instead. Take it easy on nuts, cheeses, eggs, pasta, and croutons. These things are high in fat, calories, or both.
