Description

Whenever we have tacos for dinner, I plan on having this salad the next day with leftover taco fixin’s. Satisfying, tasty, and and filling enough for the biggest appetite. Suitable for Atkins, keto, lchf, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free if cheese omitted.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Iceberg Lettuce, Chopped
  • 2 ounces, weight Cooked Ground Beef With Taco Seasoning (See Note)
  • 1 ounce, weight Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • ½ ounces, weight Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 3 whole Nature Sweet Cherub Tomatoes, Quartered (About .75 Ounce)
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • 2 Tablespoons Best Foods/Hellman's Real Mayonnaise (Not Light Version)
  • 2 Tablespoons La Victoria Thick And Chunky Salsa, Medium Heat
  • 1 Tablespoon Heinz Reduced Sugar Ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Bragg's Cider Vinegar
  • 1 drop Ez-Sweetz Liquid Sucralose

Preparation

Layer all of the salad ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup. Pour over salad, and serve.

Note: I always used leftover ground beef from taco night for this salad. If you don’t have any ground beef already cooked, you will need to do that step first. Or use some cooked and cubed chicken in place of the beef.

Tip: This dressing is sweet and spicy both, and a high fat dressing for lchf/keto. If you would prefer a less sweet dressing, or lower fat for this salad, use 2 tablespoons ranch dressing mixed with 2 tablespoons of your favorite salsa.

Nutritional estimates are per serving based on exact ingredients I used, calculated with a free online recipe analyzer. I do not include sugar alcohols or liquid sucralose in my nutrition counts, as they are not absorbed by the body and rate zero on the glycemic index.
