Recipe of the Month - Clean Eating Taco Salad

Clean Eating Turkey Taco Salad



·         1 Tablespoon olive oil, divided

·         1 cup red bell pepper, chopped

·         1 cup orange bell pepper, chopped

·         ½ red onion, chopped

·         1 lb ground turkey

·         2 Tablespoons taco seasoning

·         romaine lettuce, chopped

·         ½ cup grape tomatoes, chopped

·         1 jalapeno pepper, chopped

·         ½-1 avocado, chopped into chunks

·         ½-1 cup fresh fruit-based salsa (I used peach)

·         1 lime

·         chopped cilantro, to taste

·         hot sauce, to taste


1.   Toss chopped onions and peppers with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and grill or sauté in a skillet until they reach your desired texture. Once cooked, set aside.

2.   Brown turkey in a large skillet with a little olive oil. Break meat into smaller pieces as it cooks. Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until the turkey is no longer pink. Add taco seasoning to the pan and stir to combine. If the meat seems too dry, add a little water with the seasoning.

3.   While the turkey it cooking, prep your salads. Start with a base of romaine lettuce and begin layering the toppings — tomatoes, jalapeño slices, avocado and salad. Squeeze a little lime juice onto each salad and sprinkle on chopped cilantro. Add a few drops of hot sauce if using

Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

The sturdy texture of corn tortillas works best for these tacos, but you can use flour tortillas. Since the recipe makes more slaw than necessary for the tacos, serve the extra on the side.
