A Healthier Taco Salad

I love a good taco salad. And sometimes I want it to be smothered in queso, ranch dressing, and served with a side of salty chips. And sometimes I want something a little lighter. Something that tastes fresh and is full of complex flavors and textures. In the summer, I especially crave those fresh, crispy flavors. So today I’m sharing our favorite version of a healthier taco salad!

  1. I love taco salads! This one looks so good! I am the same way, sometimes I want one covered in queso and sometimes I want a light fresh tasting one.

  2. I love taco salad too. As a kid I would always have tacos for my birthday parties…There is just something about the flavor combos that make it one of my favorite!

  3. Ever since I was a kid I have loved the same homemade taco salad. I used to use lettuce, cheese, chips, and taco bell hot sauce. Now I swap spinach for lettuce, and usually beans or something similar for cheese, but keep the chips and sauce!! Although….I haven’t had taco bell hot sauce in a while, I just use salsa.
