Paleo Taco Salad with Dairy Free Ranch
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 - 2 Tbs. taco seasoning (I suggest this homemade taco seasoning)
  • Chopped romaine lettuce -- 1½ - 2 cups lettuce per serving
  • Additional veggies of your choice: diced red bell peppers, diced avocado, black olives
  • Pico de gallo, if desired
  • Sprouted pumpkin seeds,available here, if desired
  • Guacamole, if desired
  • My dairy free ranch dressing recipe
  • Optional: grain free tortilla chips for serving, I lovethis brand
  1. In a saute pan over medium heat, cook the ground beef with the taco seasoning. Start with 1 Tbs. of seasoning and increase to 2 Tbs. after tasting, if you want more spice.
  2. You'll have enough meat for 4 to 6 servings. You can keep leftovers in the fridge for a couple days. Prepare the amount of lettuce and vegetables according to how many servings you desire.
  3. For each salad, take a couple handfuls of chopped romaine and top it with the veggies and optional additions of your choice. Enjoy with the dairy free ranch dressing.
  4. I love serving this salad with a side of thesegrain free tortilla chips.
