L.A. Turkey Taco Salad – Easy and healthy!

Low-fat, but delicious. This healthier version has all the rich spicy meat, but tasty substitutions like turkey will have you forgetting about the missing cheese and beef. Loaded with vegetables and flavor, you’ll love this L.A. version. It’s extra good by adding chopped avocado for “healthy fat”, if you’d like.
