Keto Taco Salad

Keto Taco Salad

It’s almost Taco Tuesday again: just a little over a day away. Fortunately, keto and Mexican food fit together very well! I recently made this Keto Taco Salad that I think will perfectly execute a ‘taco Tuesday salad.’ Probably the salad part won’t be a new sensation, but we can always try. I ate a lot of taco salads growing up, so they are one meal I enjoy having. This taco salad is great because it allows a ton of freshness, with many healthy ingredients incorporated. There’s a bit of spiciness with the meat. There’s a bit of acidity from the lime. Plus, there’s creaminess via the avocado and sour cream to balance everything out.


With this Keto Taco Salad, there’s truly no need to have a dressing. The sour cream and avocado are all that’s needed! After cooking the meat, you’re just looking at adding everything to a large bowl and tossing. You could feel free to include the sour cream and avocado as well, to completely incorporate. I personally chose to use them as a topping/serving, though.


While having authentic flavors, this taco salad only results in 6 net carbs! This is much lower than you’d be able to get at a restaurant, so well worth the small effort to make. Looking at a few labels online, a typical taco salad would probably be closer to 14 net carbs, if eating out. This is pretty high for a salad! Given this, I came up with this delicious, yet lower carb version. I hope that you make this Keto Taco Salad soon and enjoy!
