About the Crunchless Keto Friendly Taco Salad
My Chicken Taco Salad recipe has all the fixings you’ll find in your favorite healthy taco salad; lettuce, spiced chicken, cheese, tomatoes, green onions, avocado, salsa, the works! But it is sooooo much easier to eat.
We have added all the basic ingredients in your salad including chicken, cheese, avocado and salsa but without the beans and taco shells to keep it friendly for Keto dieters. It still works well and you will love it. Adding everything to a salad of Romaine lettuce makes everything come together with the Salsa and Yogurt Dressing.
The low-carb dressing makes this all work perfectly and the taste is as good as anything you will find in a restaurant. Another good thing is you can get the ingredients in any country of the world. (Well Sort Of). Since we travel constantly we try to keep as many of our favorites as we can.
To make healthy taco salad dressing, I mix together salsa and plain nonfat Greek yogurt. The yogurt tastes just like a big dollop of sour cream, without the additional calories, and it gives the Crunchless Keto Friendly Taco Salad an extra boost of protein, too.

It is so easy to put together. We love it for family dinners and entertaining our friends. Whether or not they are followers of the Keto Diet, we get raves on the Keto Friendly Taco Salad. You can use Chicken, Ground Beef, or Pork. Haven’t tried it with fish yet. I’ll have to ponder on that one for a while.
