Paleo Taco Salad with Creamy Avocado dressing

Posted by Green Owl on

Paleo taco salad with fresh avocado...here’s how!

This is a great Summer lunch or dinner idea and really easy to make. Add in a grass-fed beef pattie, wild salmon, or any healthy meat for an incredible meal!
“The avocado dressing provides some extra healthy fats and brightness to the salad. The lime juice and cilantro provide a refreshing flavor that really brings the taco salad together. It takes about a minute to blend, and tastes good either at room temperature or chilled. You can store any extra dressing in the refrigerator for the next meal. Just wait to dress the salad until right before you’re ready to eat it so that the lettuce doesn’t get soggy on you. The taco seasoning can also be made ahead of time in large batches and stored, or you can combine the different seasonings while you cook the meat.”
For the salad
  1. 2-3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  2. 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  3. 3 tbsp sliced black olives
  4. 3 green onions, chopped
  5. 8 oz. ground beef
  6. 1 tsp chili powder
  7. 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  8. 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  9. 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  10. 1/8 tsp paprika
  11. Salt and pepper, to taste
For the dressing
  1. 1/2 avocado, pit removed
  2. 2 tbsp olive oil
  3. 1 tbsp lime juice
  4. 1 clove garlic, minced
  5. 1 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  6. 1 tbsp water
  7. Pinch of salt
Directions
  1. To make the dressing, blend the ingredients with an immersion blender or in a regular blender and process until smooth. Add more water if necessary to reach desired consistency, and taste for seasoning. Set aside.
