Grilled Turkey Taco Salad

I posted an image to our instagram stories of this salad the other day and everyone went wild for it- so here is the much anticipated recipe! Note that for the seasoning on the grilled turkey we make our own “Taco Seasoning Blend” but you can use a mixed Taco seasoning if you have that in your pantry!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder 
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika 
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • Crushed red pepper flakes or Cayenne to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Medium Sized Turkey Breasts
  • 1 head Romaine, finely chopped
  • 1 large Tomato, diced
  • 2-3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 Red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Avocado, sliced
  • Tortilla Chips , to taste

Method:

  1. Mix all “Seasoning” ingredients and olive oil together in a bowl 
  2. Add in two turkey breasts and let sit to marinade for at least an hour.
  3. Once turkey has marinaded, grill on the BBQ until internal temperature reaches 165 Degrees Fahrenheit
  4. Remove Turkey from Grill, Slice and let sit.
  5. Combine all other salad ingredients. 
  6. Top with sliced turkey breast, avocado and tortilla chips
  7. I never find a need to add dressing to this salad.. But if you are so inclined, 1 tbsp Olive Oil + 1 tbsp Lime Juice is all you need!
  8. Enjoy!
