Great taco salad. I added fat free sour cream, sliced black olives, and taco sauce on the top. Tasted even better!!!
Awesome Salad! My husband thought the taste was comparable to a Wendy's Taco Salad and loved it. We cut the recipe in half and found that it sufficed to fill the two of us well. Our adjustments were that we added low-fat Sour Cream and omitted the avocado, scallions and jalapenos. We thought the mango gave the salad a fresh taste and helped balance the spicy taste of the chicken, next time we will cube the mango in smaller pieces and toss it within the salad to disperse the taste better. Prima!
This is great, but there's almost a full gram of sodium in it. To cut down, try unsalted/low-salt tortilla chips, low sodium taco seasoning, and unsalted salsa. It'll cut the sodium per serving down by at least a third, almost half if you can find the right products. <br/><br/>I also like to add a small can of unsalted corn niblets and a couple different kinds of beans for a Southwest flavor. <br/><br/>Try a combination of white, red, and black, or just get a can of unsalted mixed chili beans. <br/><br/>Try all of these together and you'll get a lot more fiber and protein, and a lot less salt. It doesn't even change the taste much since you're still getting a lot of new flavors to balance it out.
YEA!! for a fresh, healthy Mexican dish!
This recipe was awesome. I grilled some chicken breast in the "onion and lime" marinade and then served them ontop of the salad... AWESOME. HEALTHY. LOVED IT. I also used Newman's Own Mango Salsa to accent the fresh mango. SO SO GOOD!
I loved this salad! Please don't think I didn't, I'm just trying to stay in the star guidelines. I forgot to add the carrots and scallions, but it was still a very filling and satisfying meal. I love the flavor of the lime and the taco seasonings. I will make this again. That being said, my DH only gave it 3 stars. I think something about the aroma of the cooking turkey and onions got to him, because he came into the kitchen while it was cooking and turned on the fan. Smelled fine to me...
