Quick Weeknight Taco Salad


Everyone is always asking for quick weeknight primal recipes; this one is adaptation from my wife of a fancier Primal Taco Salad that she has made in the past.  In this particular one a few “shortcuts” are done to cut down the prep time.  Best of all everything cooks in one dish, ok that is best for me on on dish duty.  This salad is fantastic, full of meat and cheese so you fill nice and full; it has crunch and best of all that flavor we just love in Texas.  Here is what you need

  • Bag of Romain lettuce (preferably cut and preached)
  • 1 lb of Grass Feed Beef
  • Onion (chopped)
  • Green Bell Pepper (chopped)
  • Jalapeno (optional)
  • Clove of Garlic
  •  1 Tablespoon Taco Seasoning (make sure it has no added sugar) we use Fiesta Brand
  • Cheese (favorite full fat variety)
  • Tomatoes
  • Black Olives (optional)
  • Carrots sticks (Secret of the crunch)
  • Salsa (leftover homemade is best) but Pace or another brand with no added sugar works well

Brown the beef in a 12″ skillet about half way through this process add taco seasoning, garlic, Onions, bell pepper (you can put as little or as much of these as you want its your salad).  While the meat continues to cook prepare your tomatoes, grate the cheese (or open the bag of shredded cheese) Put the Romain on a plate, mix in the carrots; add the beef, cheese, black olives, tomatoes in that order.  Then top with Salsa instead of dressing and enjoy.
