  • 1 pound ground beef 85/15
  • 1 packet/recipe taco seasoning
  • 1 head romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 slice avocado
  • 1 can 2.25oz sliced black olives
  • 1 cup sliced grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded mexican cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
  • 1/3 cup red salsa or salsa verde (see notes for other options)


  • See notes below for vairations and options before you start
  • First, cook brown beef. Use a seaosning packet and follow direction or follow my homemade recipe I linked below
  • You can buy shredded lettuce in a bag to make it easier or buy a fresh head of romaine and chop it up yourself. Fresh is best of course.
  • Drain sliced olives, slice tomotoes, avocado
  • In a salad bowl add lettuce, olives, cheese, tomatoes, avocado and give a toss
  • Next add ground beef, salsa and sour cream and give it a good mix, serve
  • Nutrition info is based around one person eating at least 4 ounces of ground beef, not 4oz of salad. For ease, split salad into 4 servings


Keto Salad Ideas

  • Tortilla chips, we now have different keto friendly tortilla chips such as quest or even fatsnax to mix in with your salad for a crunch
  • Pico de Gallo, instead of the grape tomatoes use pico de Gallo for a tasty sub.
  • Guacamole, why just have plain avocados, although tasty. You can add in some fresh guac with a delicious lime flavor. Just remember the guac is extra!
  • Shredded chicken, swap out the ground beef and use the taco seasoning on shredded chicken or perhaps steak for a nice change up in protein. Or, use them both!
  • Red or green salsa, either is perfect in this recipe.
  • Queso, can you imagine the flavor of warm queso running through your salad? I am addicted thinking about it!
