Taco Salad with a Taco Seasoning Dressing

I know it has been a long time since my last post, I have had such a busy past couple of months and am slowly getting back into the swing of things.

When I was in college every Tuesday would be taco salad Tuesday,  and it was my favorite food they offered at the dining halls.  I was craving Mexican the other day and I thought why not make taco salad, try and make it a little healthier and make an exciting dressing.  This was so good, and much healthier then the usual taco salad, since the dressing was made with Greek yogurt.

Prep time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Serving size: This made enough for 4 big salads

Ingredients

For the salad
  • 1 bag of spinach
  • 1 14.5 oz can of black beans (drained)
  • 1 pound of  ground turkey
  • Tortilla chips for topping
  • Mexican cheese for topping
  • 2 avocados diced
For the dressing
  •  3/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup of non-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder
Directions

  1. Prepare your dressing by adding all of your dressing ingredients together, mix well.
  2. The dressing is meant to be a little runny, if you want it thicker add less milk.
  3. Refrigerate the dressing for at least an hour.
  4.  While dressing is cooling, brown your ground turkey and let cool.
  5. In a bowl add about 1/4 cup of spinach, 1/4 cup of black beans, 1/4 cup of ground turkey, diced avocado, tortillas and cheese. 
  6.  Top with your desired amount of dressing.
Final Product
