I love myself a good taco salad.The flavor combination is one of my absolute favorites, plus salads like these literally take minutes to whip up. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen me make the same salad like 5 different ways, and there's absolutely no shame in my game. One of my tricks to consistently eating healthy is to keep things EASY. I firmly believe that there's no reason to make things harder than they have to be! One of the ways I keep things simple is my making small changes to healthy meals that I love. For instance, maybe I had a steak taco salad on Monday and I'm running short on time Thursday. I already have a ton of leftover salad ingredients in the fridge to make another taco salad but I just don't want steak again. All I do is switch up my protein! Instead of steak I'll do salmon, chicken, or whatever meat I have in the fridge/freezer. That way I'm using up leftovers and not having to cook an entirely different meal! 

My salads always start with a fresh bed of greens like a mix of romaine, arugula, and spinach. Then I add toppings like rice, maybe  black beans, salsa, lots of fresh veggies, and my protein. Finally I tie everything together with a good dressing. 

When it comes to my taco salads I prefer a creamy dressing over an oil and vinegar based dressing. I love a good vinaigrette, but sometimes you just really need a creamy dressing to pull all the flavors in your salad together. You know what I mean? 

This creamy chipotle dressing has a delicious smoky flavor with a little bit of heat. It's also completely dairy free, Paleo, Vegan/Vegetarian and even Whole30 friendly. I love drizzling it over a taco salad or using in place of sour cream on my tacos!
