Keto Taco Salad

Keto Taco Salad

This AMAZING taco salad is a go-to dinner staple in my house. It’s not only absolutely delicious, but also super quick & easy to make (under 10 minutes). The combo of vibrant flavors is a perfect balance of fat, protein, and low carb vegetables.  And this is also the perfect Keto meal substitute for Taco Tuesday!

And if you enjoy this salad, you’ll love my ‘Taco Loco’ Omelette recipe –  the perfect way to take advantage of any leftovers.  Warning – you may not have any =)
