Skinny Taco Salad ~

I’m sharing with you this skinny taco salad that you would never believe it was skinny after tasting it! Using the ground turkey, you can’t even tell it isn’t ground beef with all the other layers of flavor. The black beans are great in this salad…extra protein… extra color and helps keep you full. The lettuce, tomatoes, olives and onions gives it a great freshness! Top with lean sour cream and salsa and TaDa a delicious skinny dinner!

I would love to hear from you!
