healthy taco salad

A super hearty salad … made with ground turkey and topped with shredded Monterey Jack cheese, scallions, green olives & Campari tomatoes.  If you like the taco thing, then this is your new favorite salad.


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chile powder
  • 1 medium potato, peeled & finely chopped
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock (or water)


In a large skillet on medium high, heat oil and cook turkey & onion until turkey is no longer pink..using a wooden spoon to break up the meat.
Next, stir in cumin, chili powder and salt.
Add in the potato, tomato, garlic, jalapeño and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium low. Allow to simmer for 15 mins (stir occasionally). Remove when potatoes are tender to the fork.

Serves 4.

For the salad:

  • I used shredded iceberg lettuce here, but would use romaine next time.
  • Adding avocado or crushed tortilla chips to the salad next time.
  • shredded jack cheese
  • sliced tomato
  • chopped olives
  • Ranch Dressing

…delicious happens
