Taco salad is an easy, healthy salad recipe perfect for summer! It’s loaded with crisp vegetables, seasoned ground beef, and taco classics such as homemade salsa, cilantro and avocado. Enjoy classic Mexican flavors in a lighter, veggie-heavy meal.

So what goes into a taco salad? Today I’m using romaine lettuce, black beans, tomatoes, ground beef (with my homemade taco seasoning), red onion, cheddar cheese, and avocado. It’s then topped with homemade salsa (the best!), sour cream, lime juice and cilantro.

But it’s completely customizable to your dietary preferences! While this taco salad recipe is naturally gluten-free, I have tips for making it paleo, keto, low-carb, dairy-free and vegan on the recipe blog post below. It’s a healthier spin on tacos, so have fun with it!

Minito Restrepo says:

I made the salsa, the taco seasoning and tha taco salad, everything was delicious!

Amanda Lashley says:

Hmm, maybe I should make some taco seasoning, I usually just dump all those spices into my taco meat while I'm cooking it, might save some time if I just had a jar full of all the spices already mixed together.

Linda Hrushanyk says:

This was tonight's dinner! The salsa is so very good. The taco seasoning I will use again. I added corn, because I like corn. Thank you for sharing your recipe. The salad was very good!
