Taco Salad

This is a pretty easy recipe and most of you probably already know how to make a taco salad but this is how I make it so that I stay on plan with Medifast. This just happens to be one of my favorite salads to make, especially since I love tacos! I don't even miss the taco shells. Another variation you could do with the leftover taco meat is make a cauliflower pizza crust, add 2 tbsp salsa over the top, spread your taco meat, and then add some Mexican cheese. There you go... a Mexican Pizza! This would be two servings though. Very yummy too! Enjoy!
