This Taco Salad w/Salsa Lime Dressing is a delicious main course salad! It’s made with seasoned ground turkey and topped with a homemade Salsa Lime Dressing that is to die for! Just look at all the fresh and delicious ingredients that go into this Taco Salad w/Salsa Lime Dressing!!
I started by making the Salsa Lime Dressing. It’s a mayo based dressing which give it a delicious creaminess! And, it’s super quick to make, using just four ingredients: mayo, salsa, lime, and cumin powder. Super easy! Super Delicious! Once I mixed up the dressing, I placed it in the ‘fridge and began browning the ground turkey and prepping the other ingredients.This meal was seriously as easy as making a quick dressing, browning some meat, chopping a few toppings, and mixing all together in a big bowl!! Dinner doesn’t get much easier than that!Once everything is in the bowl, pour on the dressing and give it a good mix!!Then, serve it up and enjoy!!
