{Taco Salad}

Taco Salad

Taco Salad–the perfect weeknight meal after a lifetime weekend of overeating! I know it’s the middle of the week but after the last few weekends/weeks of eating as much as I have been, I felt like I needed to post a main course salad recipe. And the great thing about taco salad is that it really does still feel like a main course. The only tricky part is if you’re using store bought dressing, you need to be careful about which brand you buy–some of them are packed with calories! The fresh avocado on top is the only way to go in my opinion, but I’ve learned that we Californians are just a bit¬†avocado obsessed…

Here’s the recipe!

Serves 2
