Our All-in-One Mexican Salad has the same great taste of a taco with the ease and nutrition of a salad. It not only fits perfectly within a diabetes diet, but also looks good enough to be the centerpiece of your table!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 (1-ounce) low-sodum package dry taco seasoning mix
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded (about 8 cups)
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (16-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup black olives
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 (8-ounce) bag baked tortilla chips, crushed
  • 1 cup low-fat salad dressing

What to Do

  1. In a medium skillet, brown ground turkey with taco seasoning mix, stirring to break up the meat; drain and cool.
     
  2. In a large glass trifle or other serving bowl, layer half the lettuce then half the cheese, beans, olives, ground beef, and tomatoes. Repeat layers then top with crushed tortilla chips.
     
  3. Just before serving, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat ingredients well.

Why do I see only zeroes in the nutritional information?

Hi there. Our site has recently gone through some updates and we are aware this has left some of our recipes without the nutritional information. We are working diligently to get his restored. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have everything restored soon.

Thanks...I see that everything is there now, and it is a great help to me!

Looks good will try it with thanks

I will make this love Mexican food but I have to watch it, due to renal diet. This will be my slurge recipe along with many others. Will re-adjust to fit my needs such as: No beans & very little Taco Seasoning Mix, chips anything high in sodium & phosphours. Thanks sounds delicious. YUMMY, YUMMY

I too have to watch my sodium. Check out tostada chips in the Mexican aisle. There is a brand in the Chicago area called El Ranchero that has 10 mg of sodium in each tostada. I use them instead of the commercial tortilla chips.

RonP Use the turkey instead of the beef, you can use beef but more calories. It must have been a typo.

What do I do with the ground turkey and how much and where does the ground beef come from that is to be browned with the taco seasoning, etc.?

Thanks for pointing this out, Ron. It was indeed a typo, and you should be using ground turkey, which is what the nutrition data reflects.
