Taco Salad


Taco Salad is great anytime of the year and a wonderful addition to your Tuesday taco repertoire. It’s easy to make can be adjusted if you are on our 21-Day Reset Program or all plant based. Just so happens in the Fall we rev back up with school starting and activities in full swing. We continue to enjoy the laziness of summer here in So Cal.

Building your own Taco Salad is perfect for those busy back to school days and the need for a quick to assemble meal. Great for the whole family, especially for those with differing palettes, a simple weeknight meal or a spontaneous dinner party that is sure to delight your taste-buds! ! A little sangria, mojito or lavender lemonade cocktail adds a little Olé for an impromptu end of summer fiesta! Make any of our wonderful salsas to add to your taco bar! Scroll down and see just how easy taco salad is to prepare. Watch our recipe video below! 

There are many variations on this DIY taco salad, you can even make it CLEAN ! It’s fun and oh so tasty!
