Ole! Taco Tuesday night just got better, with this easy keto taco salad! Creamy avocado and cheese pair with seasoned beef, tomatoes, and loads of greens for a complete, macro friendly meal!
I have to admit the hardest part for me when I started the keto diet lifestyle was missing out on taco night. I still miss the crunch of the corn tortillas, or the softness of the flour tortillas.
However, now I can have my tacos and eat them, too. This keto taco salad fits the bill nicely. It has all the flavors of my favorite homemade tacos, without the gluten, carbs, and guilt.
Ingredients you need:
- Fresh salad greens
- Ground beef
- Taco seasoning
- Cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
How to put this together:
- Brown beef and season.
- Separate salad greens onto 2 plates or salad bowls.
- Top with seasoned beef, and remaining ingredients.
What makes this a low carb taco salad?
When you take away the flour or corn tortillas, you are left with components that are keto friendly. The sour cream, the seasoned beef, avocados, tomatoes, and healthy greens for a base.
How can I make this ahead of time?
This is one of my favorite keto recipes for meal prep. Simply prepare a large batch of taco meat, and layer your salad in easy to grab containers for lunch. You can also make this up in a large bowl, and top with sour cream when ready to serve.
This salad should keep fresh in the fridge for up to 4 days, under a tightly covered container, salad bowl, or even mason jars.
Can I use a salad dressing?
If you have extra carbs in your daily macros, you can certainly add some salad dressing or other toppings. Try:
- 3 cups salad greens
- 1 pound ground beef
- 3 Tablespoons taco seasoning
- 6 Campari tomatoes, quartered
- 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese
- 1 large Haas avocado
- Sour cream
- Brown ground beef, and season with homemade taco seasoning.
- Separate salad greens into 2 salad bowls, or onto 2 large plates.
- Top with quartered tomatoes, sliced avocado, cheese, ground beef, sour cream, and salsa.
